Re: Any volunteer to evaluate/fix Python3.9 issues in python-cogent?

FYI: python-cogent requires numba, numba (which is a just-in-time compiler for Python) got removed from testing for not supporting Python 3.9 yet.

They finally backported a patch for numba, but the numba armhf tests are failing https://qa.debian.org/excuses.php?package=numba They tried to work around that with the last upload https://tracker.debian.org/news/1222710/accepted-numba-0520-2-source-into-unstable/ but that didn't work yet.

Python-cogent also depends on jupyter-sphinx and that package is also in a tough place: https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=950598

python-cogent is not yet explicitly supporting Python3.9 and the
packaging was excluding Python3.9 installation.  I removed this
exclusion[1] since it makes cogent useless in Bullseye.  However, there
are not really unexpected issues in the test suite.  Any volunteer to at
least check the amount of work to port to Python3.9 and provide some
patch for upstream?

Kind regards
