SABnzbd for Py3 stable yet?

Hey guys, how's the code conversion to work with Python 3 going? Is the rewritten SABnzbd stable enough for everyday use?

I'm hoping to begin work on migration for QNAP users next month (July 2019), but can wait if it's not quite ready yet. :)

Thanks.

IMHO stable enough for daily use by a developer. Not for every user. A traceback can still happen.

Okiedoke, thanks @sander. I’ll wait a bit longer then. :)

I was hoping you as a dev would start using it ...

I'd hoped to start using it too... but I'm hardly a Python dev (haven't coded in Python for 2 to 3 years now), so I stick to 'stable' Python builds. :)

Maybe you could try to run it on your (QNAP) system and see what tracebacks you get? And then report those at Github?
That would be of great help!
Not yet as your daily-downloader, but just to see if you can get a few of your downloads to work as expected with your normal settings?

Truth-be-told: I installed Debian on my production QNAP some time ago, so I don't actually use QNAP's OS myself on a daily basis. ;)

I still maintain the sherpa script but have to develop and test it on my old backup NAS running QTS - which is only powered-up on the weekends for about an hour.

To test stability of the new SABnzbd properly on a QNAP, it needs to be installed on someone's production NAS running QTS.
