Lars, do you not recall the previous threads on this? The very same questions 
were answered about tooling. The very same requests were made and now Michal is 
providing a reasonable timeline that he would like other devs to help the 
Python team meet.

I see plenty of other devs and contributors touch Python packages with no 
problems... Is it just you maybe?

It doesn't seem *anything* will work with a few "high profile" devs in the 

Provide tooling? Not good enough. Provide a reasonable timeline? Not good 
enough. Open bugs? We ignore them.
