[New-bugs-announce] [issue39726] ctypes on pypi has fallen behind

New submission from David Harding <hardingprofessional at gmail.com>:

I wasn't sure where to report this.

ctypes currently bundled with Ubuntu 16.04 and 18.04 is version 1.1.0.

ctypes available through pypi is 1.0.2.


This makes maintaining a reproducible environment with venv kind of tricky. It would be desirable to catch the pypi version up to 1.1.0.

I don't really know who to bother about this, so I'm starting here.
