Discussion on: My Take on Python Version 2 vs 3

I have a policy in my team that if they find something that isn't compatible with python 3 then they should make it compatible and release it back. For now, this has come up with some creative workarounds as they're a little nervous of community contributions!

I've seen similar things done with my projects as well. There are fewer and fewer good reasons to write Python 3 incompatible code. Most, if not all, of the large popular libraries have support for it.

A huge benefit to your team's approach is that it forces the developers to be aware of python3 incompatibilities and to learn new concepts.
