During the last year Askbot, a question and answer oriented internet tool, similar to stack overflow has been tested for internal usage.

The testing went well and it was decided to use the tool in a larger scope.

Trying to prepare the tool for this we found that the source code under https://github.com/ASKBOT/askbot-devel is still Python 2 and not well maintained. As it is not even compatible with current openSUSE Leap 15 and we don't want to run it in some insecure not updatable container we decided after a short discussion that:

  1. Askbot would still be a very valuable tool for SUSE

  2. We want to have it

  3. The best solution to get this done is to port Askbot to Python 3

Aim of this Hackweek project would be to port Askbot to Python 3.

See https://github.com/ASKBOT/askbot-devel/issues/772

Update!

Good news: We're getting help from upstream!

Looking for mad skills in:

python django
