Dear yt dev team,

As was previously mentioned in yt 4.0.0's release notes, we're currently 
planning to drop support for Python 3.6 in our next feature release (4.1.0)
I propose that this change be performed on the dev branch of yt by late
October this year, but not earlier than October the 20th.

As was discussed on Slack, I would like to send an official announcement 
tyt-users@python.org, but I’ll leave open to discussion for a week first, or
as long as necessary for the discussion to resolve happily.

Here's the PR to drop Python 3.6 https://github.com/yt-project/yt/pull/2917
Please take minute to either request changes, discuss and/or approve it.


Nice implications

This means we'll soon be able to use Python 3.7+ only syntax and features.
Here are the two key highlights that I personally think are most impactful for yt:

See the detailed "what's new" note from Python 3.7.0 for more https://docs.python.org/3/whatsnew/3.7.html


Additional notes



Cheers, and have a great week
Clément
