Description Zac Medico gentoo-dev 2020-12-24 23:42:11 UTC
Since python3.7, the asyncio.get_running_loop() and functions are the preferred ways to access and run event loops. The asyncio.get_running_loop() function makes it possible to avoid passing around event loop instances in order to accommodate loops running in non-main threads (see the fix for bug 737698). For python3.6 compatibility, we can add shims for these functions in the portage.util.futures.asyncio module.
