Dear Joaquin,

We are certainly interested in removing those packages from the poll
which have been ported to Python 3. To that effect, I have activated
a procedure which checks regularly for packages that use the Python :: 3
trove classifier.

For the others in your list, we need to consider them individually,
and then remove them manually. For Pygame, it appears that the
maintainers only have old releases on PyPI, but not the most recent one,
so I added it manually.

For ipython, I have also removed it from the list, even though it
probably would be better if ipython used the trove classifier.

For the packages that don't have released their Python 3 versions yet,
I'd rather keep the status quo, until they actually make a release
that supports Python 3.

If you think more packages need reconsideration, please let us know.
