This is great news!
+devel at buildbot.net <devel at buildbot.net>

Seriously, I have few hint on how much time it is to run buildbot on
python3 .

I am currently focussed to releasing buildbot 0.9.0, and then 0.9.1 which
will be about scalability and multimaster testing.
So I would not be able to look at this too soon.

Obviously if somebody else steps up. I will be glad to accept py3 compat
