Sadly no, that version of txi2p does not work with Python3.  The upstream
project had Python3 support in the master branch for a while, but its
maintainer was not available to make a relase.  So a fork was made, named
txi2-tahoe, just to unblock the porting process:


Hopefully the fork will be an interim measure, but we all know that some
interim measures have the nasty property of becoming long term measures!
I guess long term plans about the library's maintenance will depend on if
there's sufficient interest in continued I2P support in Tahoe-LAFS.  If that
turns out to be the case, it certainly should have more than one maintainer.
