Subject [jira] [Commented] (COMDEV-306) GSoC - Allura - Convert to python 3

Dave Brondsema commented on COMDEV-306:
---------------------------------------

[~Abhism] you should join the dev mailing list at [https://lists.apache.org/list.html?dev@allura.apache.org]
and introduce yourself.  That's the best place to ask questions about Allura.  I would recommend
first installing Allura and getting it running so you can be familiar with it.  Then you
could try upgrading one dependency from requirements.txt at a time, and see if everything
works and tests pass still.  That'd be a good starting task to try.

> Allura is a large mature codebase, and relies on many dependencies.  The path to python
3 will have many steps, but we need to start working on it.  GSOC work would include familiarizing
with porting guides like [https://docs.python.org/3/howto/pyporting.html] and [https://portingguide.readthedocs.io/en/latest/]
and [http://python3porting.com/] and then working through steps like:
>  * upgrading dependencies, and updating code & tests to match
>  * removing or replacing dependencies where needed, and updating code
>  * running futurize or modernize, manual code changes where needed, cleanup, etc
>  * testing
>  * documentation updates
>  * Docker updates
>  * more, probably :)
