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.

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:

Additional notes

Cheers, and have a great week
