A quick reminder for everyone to please keep all replies on the relevant
mailing lists.

Unless the topic is clearly a sensitive matter or someone has expressly
requested private communication, always reply to the mailing list and
not the individual.  This practice ensures the entire context for the
topic of discussion is visible to the wider audience and is archivable
for future reference.

Fair point.  I was only intending to address Артем's question on that
specific bit of syntax.

That is probably the best advice, until such time as folks get around to
fully addressing all of the porting/compatibility issues.

How can I do this in command prompt (or somewhere else)?

You will have to look up instructions specific to your operating system for installing and using Python 2 and Python 3 side-by-side.

And I cannot comment at all regarding the 2to3 script mentioned.

There is another problem with musicxml2ly. It gives me an error:

I am afraid my knowledge of Python is limited to only what I can find via web searches. I do not use Python in my day-to-day work, so hopefully there are others on the list that can offer more insightful guidance.
