[New-bugs-announce] [issue28099] Drop Mac OS X Tiger support in Python 3.6

New submission from STINNER Victor:

Mac OS X Tiger was released in 2004: 12 years ago, 3 years after Windows XP.

The Tiger buildbot has many issues, it uses an old compiler (GCC 4.0) and an old OpenSSL version.

Python 3.6 now requires ISO C99 support, whereas Tiger GCC 4.0 lacks support for C99 "extern inline" functions: issue #28092.

I propose to officially stop supporting Mac OS X Tiger in Python 3.6: modify the PEP 11 and What's New in Python 3.6 to announce the end of the support. Python 3.5 would be the last version supporting Tiger.
