Core developers still use Subversion (we’re in the process of
switching), but you can clone the mirror at
http://code.python.org/hg/branches/py3k/ and use named branches for your
work. You can look for bugs needing patches on bugs.python.org or open
reports and then post patches.

The email package is a high-priority task, but it’s not trivial.
R. David Murray and Shashwat Anand will maybe comment about the status
of the port.

Other interesting bugs:

Maybe you can post a call on python-list and form a small group of py3k

Happy hacking
