I'll be uploading stuff to github at http://github.com/illume/numpy3k.
    git clone git://github.com/illume/numpy3k.git

It's from numpy trunk... I hope that is ok.

Not much there yet of course. Only added a PY3K.txt file with notes
from this thread.  This will be the file you talked about with the
porting notes, and todos/status/plans etc.

Will email when there's other stuff to look at.  Maybe you could try
pulling from there and committing that file to svn as a test that my
setup is working?
