Bug Description

SRU: backport Python 3.8 to bionic. This is done to get a wider audience for 3.8 testing, helping to prepare the transition of the default Python3 to 3.8 in Ubuntu 20.04 LTS.

The new packages are not used, so there is no regression potential for the new packages.

Changed packages are the binary packages built from the python3-stdlib-extensions source package, where the 3.8 files are added. No change for the files shipped for 3.6 and 3.7. The only downside is that the packages sizes increase by ~50% by adding the files. However these packages are not part of any minimal setup, so this seems to be bearable.

The python3.8-doc package isn't built, because a newer sphinx version that the one in bionic is required.
