I agree, that we should continue to support Python 2. Our customers
operate large data centers and implement processes using python 2. They
won't migrate this code unless there is a very compelling (= saves
As long as the PSF releases new versions of Python 2.7, we should follow
the 2.7 release cycle. This way we can guarantee that Stackless 2.7.x is
compatible to C-Python 2.7.x. After the last C-Python release, we can
continue to add bug fixes and support for new platforms or OS versions.
About a Stackless 2.8: I like the idea, but we should keep a tight rein
on it and only accept back-ports of features already in (Stackless-)
Python 3.x. Otherwise we won't be able to keep a reasonable quality. And
nobody will use a Stackless 2.8, if there is no reasonable migration
path to (stackless) python 3.x. But if we add proven 3.x features, a
stackless 2.8 could become an attractive option on the way to python 3.
About Stackless 3.x: new features - except stackless related ones -
should go to C-Python. We don't have enough resources to keep up the
quality of the code and - more important - nobody will accept a
stackless based solution, if stackless becomes an esoteric and
incompatible fork of Python.
