At the time of that writing, there was no solid timeline. We're now getting closer to a concrete timeline and plan for Python 3 compatibility. As mentioned in the 1.4 alpha release notes, we should be providing a real timeline for Python 3 support sometime around the 1.4 release date. At that time we should update this page. Until then we can leave it as is.

Accepting this ticket as a reminder to update it once we do announce our plans for Python 3.

Would it be safe to mention late December as a tentative date for experimental Python 3 support (since this is the planned release for 1.5)?
