 we can work on thanks to all of the people who donated_ to the `py3k
 proposal`_.
 
-There was an increased amount of activity this month.
+The biggest news is that this month Philip started to work on py3k in parallel
+to Antonio. As such, there was an increased amount of activity.
 
 The `py3k buildbots`_ now fully translate the branch every night and run the
 Python standard library tests.
 
-We currently pass 160 out of approximately 355 test modules, fail 144 and skip
-apprixmately 51.

-o work on dictviews (keys/values/items)
+Some highlights:
 
-o _csv
+o dictviews (the objects returned by dict.keys/values/items) has been greatly
+  improved, and now they full support set operators
 
-o more parser fixes, py3 list comprehension semantics
+o a lot of tests has been fixed wrt complex numbers (and in particular the
+``__complex__`` method)
+
+o _csv has been fixed and now it correctly handles unicode instead of bytes
+
+o more parser fixes, py3k list comprehension semantics; now you can no longer
+  access the list comprehension variable after it finishes
 
 o 2to3'd most of our custom lib_pypy
 
-o py3-enabled pyrepl (readline works in the repl!), builtins.input() (pdb seems to work!)
+o py3-enabled pyrepl: this means that finally readline works at the command
+  prompt, as well as builtins.input(). ``pdb`` seems to work, as well as
+  fancycompleter_ to get colorful TAB completions :-)
 
 o py3 round
 
 contributions; among other things, Amaury recently worked on <all kinds of
 stuff listed above>
