Description Michał Górny archtester Gentoo Infrastructure gentoo-dev Security 2020-04-19 13:52:46 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 urgent.

Please note that since I run stable, I wasn't able to test and add 3.8 at this time. Please feel free to add that if it works for you, otherwise I'll do so once python 38 is stabilised.
