-Occasionally you will encounter some tets that are already filled out but you do not pass. In these cases you will need to finish implementing some code to progress. For example, there is an exercise for writing some code that will tell you if a triangle is equilateral, isosceles or scalene.

 As well as being a great way to learn some Python, it is also a good way to get a taste of [[http://www.agiledata.org/essays/tdd.html|Test Driven Development (TDD)]].
 
 
 === Installing Python Koans ===
 
-At this time of writing there are two versions of the tests, one for use with Python 2.6 and one for Python 3.1. You should be able to work with newer versions, but older ones will likely give you problems. 
+Aside from downloading or checking out the latest version of Python Koans, all you need to install is Python.

 You can download Python from [[http://www.python.org/download/|here]].
 
-On installing Python make sure the folder containing the python executable is in the system path. For with Python 2 it will be called **python** or **python.exe** depending on the operating system. For Python 3 it will be **python3** or **python.exe** for windows.

 If you have problems, this [[http://www.python.org/about/gettingstarted/|page]] may help.
 
 
 Thanks go to Joe Weirich and Jim O'Brien for the original [[http://github.com/edgecase/ruby_koans|Ruby Koans]] that Python Koans is based on! Also the Ruby Koans in turn borrows from [[http://www.rubyquiz.com/quiz67.html|Metakoans]] so thanks also go to Ara Howard for that!
 
-Also thanks to everyone who helped with the Python Koans conversion!
+Also thanks to everyone who helped with the Python Koans conversion! In particular I got a great headstart on the project by forking from this Python Koans startup project:
