It's really nice to see that somebody wants to help us with Python 3 in 

We have Google docs spreadsheet with modules and their status. Could you 
please send me your Google account? Then, I'll share it with you.

Currently, we have some possibilities how to cooperate. If you want to 
port modules you are depending on, go on and do not hesitate to contact 
me anytime for help or review. You can also gain some inspiration from 
already ported modules in Python and C. If you don't know where to start 
and if you understand Samba internals well, I have some work in progress 
and I am facing problems I cannot solve by myself (because I don't 
understand Samba internals that much) and my tries to find some help was 

Let me know if I can help you with anything or provide more information.

Thank you for your interest and have a nice day.
