Over a year ago I started a new project and needed OCR. I choose pytesseract but there was no Python 3 support and I made the decision to port it. And so this was my first pull request to an open source project. It wasn't much work but now pytesserect supports Python 2 and 3 with the same codebase.
PS: Ok my first pull request was to pelican-fresh theme, but this was even less work.
