I don't disagree, I just don't want to volunteer projects for something they
don't want.

Unless I misunderstand the situation, PIL doesn't seem applicable for SoC
given that their development tree is closed/proprietary (only free releases
are available under a free license).
Does anyone here work with PIL or can provide further insight into their Py3

Note also that some of the largest Python-based projects, Django, Mercurial,
Plone/Zope, Scons, etc, are setup as their own SoC mentoring orgs.  Only
Mercurial has Py3 migration on their ideas list.
