Bug Description

SRU: backport python 3.5.2 to 16.04 LTS

The idea is to ship a released version with the first point release of 16.04 LTS. We updated python3.5 from the the 3.5 branch up to the final 3.5.2 release, and then made a test rebuild of the archive using the new python3.5 (and some other toolchain packages).

The test rebuild was done using the release candidate of 3.5.2, however the only changes between the rc and the final release are Windows related, and include one change in the idle lib, plus a fix for a ssl test case which was already present as a local patch in the Ubuntu package. From my point of view we don't need another test rebuild.

The evaluation of the test rebuild is found in LP: #1586673. There are some issues found and/or left:

 - nuitka (a python compiler) fails in the tests, fixed by updating
   to the nuitka version in yakkety, tracked in LP: #1599240.

 - python-websockets fail in the tests. This is now and
   From my point of view this looks like an issue with the test case.

 - urwid fails two tests on ppc64el and s390x.

Hello Matthias, or anyone else affected,

Accepted python3.5 into xenial-proposed. The package will build now and be available at in a few hours, and then in the -proposed repository.

Please help us by testing this new package. See for documentation how to enable and use -proposed. Your feedback will aid us getting this update out to other Ubuntu users.

If this package fixes the bug for you, please add a comment to this bug, mentioning the version of the package you tested, and change the tag from verification-needed to verification-done. If it does not fix the bug for you, please add a comment stating that, and change the tag to verification-failed. In either case, details of your testing will help us make a better decision.

Further information regarding the verification process can be found at . Thank you in advance!
