(I'm now working in the Python Maintenance team with Petr Viktorin and
Miro Hrončok.)

This work is super useful to prepare third party modules for Python
3.7, but also to spot regressions and bugs in Python 3.7. Fedora also
helped to detect issues with the latest glibc for example.


konlpy fails on 3.7 because calling Py_Initialize() twice fails with a
fatal error

Setting LANG=C modifies the --version behavior

test_crypt segfaults when using libxcrypt instead of libcrypt

NIS module fails to build due to the removal of interfaces related to
Sun RPC from glibc.

Sadly, one issue has been detected too late and has not been fixed
before 3.7.0 final:
