Feedparser porting status, Thanksgiving edition

Posted 26 November 2010 in feedparser, programming, and python

One week ago I announced that I was going to port feedparser to Python 3. Two days ago, I wrote that I had one big question to answer: str or bytes?

Today I can say that str was the correct answer: feedparser passes all 4055 unit tests in Python 3.0 and 3.1! I've uploaded the git repository with my changes to GitHub and have posted a comment to the Porting to Python 3 bug report.

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!
