Packages from the PyQt5 stack (pyqt5, pyqt5chart, pyqt5webengine, qscintilla2) have recently started to use PEP 384 limited ABI (the built files are named *.abi3.so). However, when a debug interpreter is used for build, the build system disables this feature and builds a normal *.cpython-38d-*.so file: https://riverbankcomputing.com/hg/sip/file/6169324910f8/sipbuild/buildable.py#l60 Because of this, I decided to still build -dbg versions for these packages. Do you know how much the -dbg interpreter is compatible with *.abi3.so files? I just checked, and apparently it can import them, but maybe there is some benefit in keeping the normal debug versions too? -- Dmitry Shachnev
