SRU: update python3.6 to the new minor release 3.6.6

Bug #1792143 reported by Matthias Klose on 2018-09-12
This bug affects 1 person
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
python3.6 (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

18.04 LTS includes python3.6 3.6.5, this is about updating this Python version to the next 3.6.6 minor release as used in cosmic. The plan is to update to the next 3.6.7 release as well, once this is released and available in cosmic.

Provide the branch updates for the stable 3.6 branch in the LTS release.
Also handle a packaging issue passing build flags from debhelper to
third party extension builds.

[Regression Potential]
There is regression potential, however with a test rebuild of the main portion of the archive no regressions were found.

[Test Case]
No regressions in the Python 3.6 test suite, no regressions in the
test rebuild for the main component of the archive (all architectures).

As a test, a complete archive rebuild (main only) was performed, and no regressions were found with this new package. The archive rebuild also contained updated versions of gcc-7, gcc-8, binutils and python3.7, which should not interfer with python3.6.

Summary of the test rebuilds:

The latter includes the updated packages from the ubuntu-toolchain-r/ppa PPA
