The django_v2 benchmark uses inspect.getargspec(), which is deprecated and was removed in Python 3.6. Therefore, it crashes with the message "ImportError: cannot import name 'getargspec'" when using the latest version of Python on the default branch.

Note that Papa has submitted the patch to the tracker:


I'm not myself sure how we are maintaining that repo
(https://hg.python.org/benchmarks), but it does seem like the bug
tracker is the right place for such a patch.
