Focal Fossa is now open for development, with the syncs from unstable
done and built, and autopkg testers trying to catch up. The development version starts with only a few changes:

 - Python 3.8 is now added as a supported Python3 version, with the
   goal to ship Python 3.8 as the only Python3 version in focal.
   Details will follow on the ubuntu-devel ML.

 - Perl was updated to version 5.30.

 - s390x is now built targeting z13 (GCC only for now).

 - While the Python2 removals imported from Debian are just
   syncs like any others, it's worth pointing out that
   some uncoordinated removals are causing some churn [3],
   and on top of that there is a Ubuntu dept/delta which needs to
   see fixing as well [4].

Please check your uploads in a focal chroot, don't just test in a eoan or bionic environment. See [1] or [2] how to setup such a development chroot.
