Description Michał Górny archtester Gentoo Infrastructure gentoo-dev Security 2020-04-19 12:15:57 UTC
The packages are stuck on py3.6 which means they will be pain once we switch to 3.7.  Please test them on 3.7 *and* 3.8 (so we don't to revisit this in a few months), and update PYTHON_COMPAT appropriately.  If it doesn't work, please either fix it, remove Python or issue last rites.  Please consider this mgorny@pomiot.
Comment 1 Ulrich Müller gentoo-dev 2020-04-19 13:34:42 UTC
With python 3.8, I am getting a deprecation warning: DeprecationWarning: This method will be removed in future versions.  Use 'parser.read_file()' instead.

Apart from this, the package builds with python3_{6,7,8} and seems to work with all three versions.
