Hello, everyone. According to a dumb grep, Python team maintains almost 1000 packages nowadays. While the project members may seem numerous, a handful of people actually maintain the majority of the packages. I've reached the point where I need to spend 3-4 hours every day on *minimal* maintenance of a subset of Python team packages. This means bumping, fixing some tests, doing some py3.9 testing. The sole amount of technical work makes it hard for me to even check bugs for all the packages I'm touching.
For this reason, I'd like to request help from the Gentoo community with dealing with bugs. This is something that doesn't really require commit access and would be very helpful to Gentoo. The idea is to look through open bugs assigned (or CC-ed) to python@ and close those that are already fixed (please ask for editbugs for that). Extra kudos for verifying bugs filed against old versions with new versions. If someone would like to help, please don't hesitate to ping me on #gentoo-python, or just start looking through bugs ;-). By the way, this is somewhat in line with bug-cleaners  goals, so you may want to look at joining that project too. I'm sure other teams would also appreciate help dealing with bugs.  https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Project:Bug-cleaners -- Best regards, Michał Górny
