Originally, I thought if the fork went nowhere, at least the Plone
community could maintain it for its own needs. However since then, a
number of folks outside the Plone community have taken an interest, so
I’ve decided to move the repository from the Plone collective to a
new organization called python-imaging. With this change, I hope to
gather folks to help develop a Python 3-compat release before PyCon
2013. (There are various PIL forks with Python 3-compat already in
existence, as well as the official PIL 1.2-dev tarball available from
bitbucket, which has some Python 3-compat if I understand correctly.)
The new home for Pillow is:
