I'm currently reviewing some of the autopkgtest regressions that are currently blocking python3-defaults with python3.8 as the default python3 from migrating. With the current state of the environment being used for autopkgtest it is quite common for python3.7 to be present in the environment even if it's not explicitly required by a dependency. As a result, I seen many failures where the test attempts to loop through python3 versions (a good thing) based on what versions are installed (bad thing). We want the tests to run against all versions, but the way to do that is to have your test depend on python3-all (to make sure that all supported versions are installed) and then use the -s flag for py3versions vice -i. So (in one common pattern) this: for py in $(py3versions -i); do changes to: for py in $(py3versions -s); do Makes all the difference in the world. I've fixed three today. If you care for a relevant package, please check. The future pain you save may be your own. Scott K
