flup maintainer has dropped the ball and release a version that isn't actually python3-compatible, while also breaking python2-compatibility (see #5373). When trying to run v0.9.0 with latest flup, users report the below error.
File "/path/to/mediagoblin/lib/python3.4/site-packages/flup-1.0.3.dev20151210-py3.4.egg/flup/server/paste_factory.py", line 7, in asbool NameError: name 'unicode' is not defined
There are alternative flup packages, such as https://pypi.python.org/pypi/flup6. We should try to find one that actually works and update the documentation. Until then, users can't run fcgi with python3.
