Description Michał Górny archtester Gentoo Infrastructure gentoo-dev Security 2020-04-19 12:16:43 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.

Friendly ping. :)
This package supports the same python versions as app-emulation/qemu, since build system runs the same python scripts during build.
