No need for a crystal ball... Python 3.8 is scheduled to be released in summer 2019. As Buster is to be frozen early the same year, it should be out before it. So, there's a lot of chance that Python 3.8 will be in Debian Sid/Bullseye before anywhere else again, probably just after the release of the OpenStack T release, meaning it most likely will be broken again in Debian Sid. > I agree that bugs with future versions of Python are always worth fixing > ASAP, whether or not we are able to test them in the gate. :) __________________________________________________________________________ OpenStack Development Mailing List (not for usage questions) Unsubscribe: openstack-dev-requ...@lists.openstack.org?subject:unsubscribe http://lists.openstack.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/openstack-dev
