+Py3k status update #8
+---------------------
+
+This is the eight status update about our work on the `py3k branch`_, which
+we can work on thanks to all of the people who donated_ to the `py3k
+proposal`_.
+
+Just a short update on November's work: we're now passing about 194 of
+approximately 355 modules of CPython's regression test suite, up from passing
+160 last month. Many test modules only fail a small number of individual tests
+now.
+
+We'd like to thank Amaury Forgeot d'Arc for his contributions, in particular he
+has made significant progress on updating `CPyExt`_ for Python 3 this month.
+
+Some other highlights:
+
+* test_marshal now passes, and there's been significant progress on pickling
+  (thanks Kenny Levinsen and Amaury for implementing int.to/from_bytes)
+
+* We now have a _posixsubprocess module
+
+* More encoding related fixes, which affects many failing tests
+
+* _sre was updated and now test_re almost passes
+
+* Exception behavior is almost complete per the Python 3 specs, what's mostly
+  missing now are the new __context__ and __traceback__ attributes (`PEP
+  3134`_)
+
+* Fixed some crashes and deadlocks occurring during the regression tests
+
+cheers,
+Philip&Antonio
