Looks like you are correct, but note that we currently have 3.10 as
stable version, so electrum-ltc should be at least that version.

If any user manages to fix the issues mentioned in last rite message
(mainly bump to at least 3.10 python target), I would gladly cancel the
last-rite and mask.
If you do it, please ping me in the PR, and I would gladly review it.

Those last-rites I did today are mainly for those packages that were
stuck in only 3.8, had a bug open for 7-10 month already. If any
maintainer can fix those ebuilds, I would happily revert the last-rite.
