[Bug 1530734] [NEW] python3 compatibility
Public bug reported:
Storm is currently not supporting python3
Starting from Ubuntu 16.04 (LTS) [21th April 2016] ubuntu will include by default support for only python 3, so this is becoming a fundamental requirement: http://summit.ubuntu.com/uos-1511/meeting/22568/python3 -only-on-the-images/
Aside from various minor code changes the main problem will be probably in fixing the storm/cextensions.c.
This ticket if for asking for a clarification on the status of the project in order to understand if it is abandoned or there is a plan for porting it to python 3.

GNU Mailman got ported to SQLAlchemy quite a while ago.
I suspect Storm won't see much new development.
