[Python-Dev] [RELEASE] Python 3.7.1rc1 and 3.6.7rc1 now available for testing

Not critical - but I note a difference between Python3 3.6.7 and 3.7.1 -
no support for the configure option --with-openssl.
On AIX I was able to run both configure and "make install" without incident.
I also ran the "make test" command.
9 tests failed again:
test_ctypes test_distutils test_httpservers test_importlib
test_site test_socket test_time test_utf8_mode test_venv
There are, for most of above, a PR for these waiting final review and merge.
test_utf8_mode: I thought this was already merged. Will research.
test_venv, test_site: new test failures (I am not familiar with). Will
need more research.
16 tests failed:
test_asyncio test_ctypes test_distutils test_ftplib test_httplib
test_httpservers test_importlib test_locale
test_multiprocessing_spawn test_socket test_ssl test_strptime
FYI: again, there are PR for many of these, but, for now, I'll assume
they will not be considered for backport. FYI only.
