SRU: Update python3.7 to the final 3.7.0 release

Bug #1792140 reported by Matthias Klose on 2018-09-12
This bug affects 1 person
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
python3.7 (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

18.04 LTS includes python3.7 as a pre-release, it is *not* a supported Python version and not used by any package (except python3-stdlib-extensions). The plan is to update to the final 2.7.0 release (and to 3.7.1 when released and tested in cosmic).

Provide an upstream release in the LTS release

[Regression Potential]
There is almost no regression potential, because the package is not in use.

[Test Case]
No regressions in the Python 3.7 test suite, no regressions in the
test rebuild for the main component.

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 python3.6, which should not interfer with python3.7.

Summary of the test rebuilds:

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

Hello Matthias, or anyone else affected,

Accepted python3.7 into bionic-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 on 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-bionic to verification-done-bionic. If it does not fix the bug for you, please add a comment stating that, and change the tag to verification-failed-bionic. In either case, without details of your testing we will not be able to proceed.

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

The package built on all architectures, and the test results look ok. The autopkg test fails as it did before, no more tests failing than with the original package in the bionic release. autopkg tests are fixed in cosmic, and these fixes will be part of a 3.7.1 upload for bionic.

The verification of the Stable Release Update for python3.7 has completed successfully and the package has now been released to -updates. Subsequently, the Ubuntu Stable Release Updates Team is being unsubscribed and will not receive messages about this bug report. In the event that you encounter a regression using the package from -updates please report a new bug using ubuntu-bug and tag the bug report regression-update so we can easily find any regressions.
