Christophe Taton commented on AVRO-1382:
----------------------------------------

Hey Pedro, thanks for the update, I'll look at this soon.
I also have some updates on the IPC layer that I need to push.

I don't know if we want to drop integration with ant : I believe it is necessary for whoever
runs the releases.
@cutting can you confirm?

> Hi,
> I'd need to use Avro from Python3, which would require essentially the following changes,
which I am happy to contribute:
>  - rewrite except statements according to new syntax
>  - rewrite print statements according to new syntax
>  - basestring becomes str
>  - update some imports (StringIO becomes io.StringIO, httplib becomes http.client)
> This would apparently require branching the python code to maintain a version for python2
and a separate version for python3.
> Any thoughts on how to approach this?
> Thanks!
