Parent article: Moving to Python 3
Packages appear as Python compatible there only if the developers
remember to add the right classifier (Programming Language::Python::3).
Many don't. E.g. decorator has been py3 compatible for years. The
same is true for lots of other packages.
The major packages which kept a lot of software back, were numpy and
scipy. But numpy officially supports python 3, and scipy, currently in -rc, will soon.
There's no need to have majority of packages supporting python 3, just a few percent of the most important ones are enough. It seems that we are quite
close to this amount.
