Zope Spring Cleaning: Last minute information

As the beta permission of Earl Zope in Python 3 wonderland was extended in October 2018, gocept invites Zope developers to the upcoming sprint from 08.05. till 10.05.2019 in Halle (Saale), Germany, to continue together on the work, which is still left.

We aim to polish the last dusty spots on Earl Zope for the final permission to Python 3 wonderland aka the final 4.0 release. As Plone and other applications based on Zope have finally found a way to migrate a ZODB Data.fs created with Python 2 to Python 3, the obstacles for this final permit are almost gone.

So if you have questions concerning migrating databases, it is a good time to join or open an issue on GitHub. As many people are working on Zope during these days, the probability of a quick answer is high.

As organizational tool to coordinate the work, we use GitHub projects again, as it allows cross-repository tracking of issues.
