Now that we have 1.1.0 out, I was thinking maybe now is the time to
merge the matplotlib-py3 branch into master.  As a reminder, the main
downside is losing compatibility with Python 2.5 and earlier.  We would
continue to have a 1.1.x maintenance branch for the foreseeable future
for small-yet-critical bugfixes, and can still make a Python
2.5-compatible bugfix release from that.

Any objections or concerns?  Any reason to hold off?


I guess it would be fine to start doing that.  Are there any recommended guides for preparing for the transition to py3k.  I haven't begun to look into that and have only been using 2.6 and 2.7 for a while now.
