Hi,

Tomorrow is the scheduled release of Python 3.10 beta 2 but unfortunately we have several release blockers:

https://bugs.python.org/issue41282Deprecate and remove distutils
https://bugs.python.org/issue40222: "Zero cost" exception handling
https://bugs.python.org/issue42972: [C API] Heap types (PyType_FromSpec) must fully implement the GC protocol
https://bugs.python.org/issue44043: 3.10 b1 armhf Bus Error in hashlib test: test_gil

We also have the address sanitizer buildbot failing :

https://buildbot.python.org/all/#/builders/582/builds/165/steps/5/logs/stdio

and some segmentation faults on the fedora stable buildbot:


Some of these issues have PRs but some of them have not. Please, if you are involved or you maintain one of the
areas involved in these issues, take a look at them and act with one of the following:

* Fix the issue making a PR
* Review an existing PR and / or merge it
* If you intend to mark it as a deferred blocker, please provide a rationale and contact me first by pinging me in the issue.

Until these issues are fixed or deferred, the release team will not be able to make a new beta release.

Thanks for your help,

Regards from stormy London,
