Description Michał Górny archtester Gentoo Infrastructure gentoo-dev Security 2020-04-19 14:34:53 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.

I just pushed a pull-request to update sigal to 2.0.
This brings py 3.7 support, but not py 3.8, due to missing support in dependencies (mainly boto).

I don't see that happening too soon, I guess py 3.8 is only happening when upstream moves from boto to boto3 (and boto3 gets py3.8 support in gentoo).

Other than that, the s3 and testsuite support would have to be removed, which was considered unacceptable when I published sigal 1.3 without s3.
