Many thanks for your offer, I only would like to ask to my previous sponsor 
first (stefanor).

Me too, but it seems upstream doesn't want to support both Python 2 and 
Python3 with a single codebase[¹] so, there is a Python3 fork[²] with Python2 
What do you suggest to handle this? The best would be to get PR 71 merged, or 
something similar...

I will start to work on pdfminer on the week end. My plan is to update the 
package to version 20140328 to fix #741046 and then working on #640303? Does 
it seem reasonable to you?

Kind regards,
