Yep, we try to ensure that everything runs unchanged with Python 2.x
(but, it requires Python >= 2.5 (for relative imports) and *maybe*
Python >= 2.6 - since I didn't test anything with Python 2.5).
Our approach is the following one:
1- run the '2to3' script
2- make it work with Python 3
3- make it work again with Python 2
The third step mainly involve alternative package import. The right
package is selected with this kind of statement:
import ModulePy2 as ModulePy3
which is more or less the recommended way to maintain backward
I was wondering: does WG have some kind of unit-testing framework for
Python scripts? because I'm quite sure that we leave out a lot of
run-time errors during the conversion process...
