[Python-modules-team] Bug#640303: pdfminer: please provide a python3 version

Package: pdfminer
Version: 20110515+dfsg-1
Severity: wishlist

There is a python2 version of pdfminer; it would be great to have a
python3 version as well.

I have successfully run 2to3 over the source code, and there does not
seem to be any obvious reason why this would not be possible.  The
majority of changes are to do with imports, the print function, the
xrange function and other standard python2 -> python3 changes.  There
are a few occurrences of "xxx_todo_changeme" arising from functions
using implicit tuple unpacking, but these are essentially harmless,
and the changeme is a request for a prettier name rather than anything
