Description Michał Górny archtester Gentoo Infrastructure gentoo-dev Security 2020-08-16 08:55:45 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 confirm libguestfs works with python3.7. I use it as dependency of LAVA.

Ping, maksbotan can you look at this? We're close to dropping py3.6 support.
Comment 4 Terra 2021-01-05 22:08:34 UTC
Ping, maksbotan - py3.6 support is now dropped (commit: 3b120860ecfa) and it has caused some havoc with world updates.  In particular I had to unmask app-misc/hivex-1.3.18 to get world updates working again.

I really don't want to see libguestfs get last rites as this package is important/useful when dealing with a lot of virtual machines.

Support for python has been dropped for now, so closing here:
