@Bitking Thanks for you interest. I think for one person the task is quite huge and I must admit that I’m still stumbling in the dark a lot of times. For instance there are these swig definitions (aka *.i files in the bindings folder) which define a lot of the interface behavior. I personally have never worked with swig and some of the stuff I don’t quite understand. My hope is that the new python bindings which are completely rewritten with modern c++ can help others. You know, it’s all about documentation and testing.
Another issues are, Windows is not very well supported and the whole capn proto thing. I hope to change all that with my community fork.
I don’t quite get the last part of your question? Once Python 3 is a first class citizen long term support should be possible.
