You can pull a list of what works with 3.0 via PyPi, there's a link
which points you to http://pypi.python.org/pypi?:action=browse&c=533&show=all.
If the package isn't listed on PyPi, I believe you'll have to check
out the vendor/distribution site.

I posted something like this on my blog a few months back.  Finding
what's available isn't too terribly difficult. I thought it would be
nice to have a port status page that lets the community know where
certain package stand so volunteers can step in and help. I guess it
would be rather difficult to keep such a page updated, though.
