Hi Massi.
we are (slowly) working on making Python 3.x (likely 3.8)
the next default Python and than we should be able to rebuild
all packages for Python3

The main reason of the slow progress is that the old maintainer
Yaakov is a skilled professional programmer


while the current maintainer (myself) is only an
average amateur programmer
(my real life profession is in Power Electronics)

that is learning the tricks and difficulties of python packaging
