That link only actually works for you, and only mentors can see
proposals, but for the record Vasily's proposal is for "provide
forward compatibility for Python 3".

We've had a few proposals for this project, actually, and I believe
all of the proposing students are on the buildbot-devel mailing list
now.  So perhaps this is a good time to talk about approaches to
porting Buildbot when Twisted is still not fully ported -- and in
particular, Perspective Broker, on which Buildbot relies heavily, is
still not ported.
