I'm not aware of any mass exodus from core Python 3 to the fork that has 
consistently proposed to give the world Python 2.8.  Do you know 
something that I don't?

Further the number of people assisting on the bug tracker at the moment 
appears to me to be going up, not down.  It therefore strikes me that 
Python is extremely tenable, thus indicating that people are not falling 
for the FUD about Python 2 versus Python 3.

My fellow Pythonistas, ask not what our language can do for you, ask 
what you can do for our language.
