Martin Panter added the comment:

This new patch applies to Python 3. As well as the above changes, I updated the doc strings based on the changes in 92760d2edc9e (Issue 1753718, Issue 20782), mainly clarifying the data types functions accept and return. Further fixes:

* In Python 3, b16decode() raises binascii.Error, not TypeError
* The base-85 functions’ data parameter is called “b”, not “s”
