I need your help, I cannot possibly fix 178 packages.
I've opened bugzillas for some, but let me ask you via e-mail before I go
file 176 of them.
* RuntimeError: generator raised StopIteration
Solution: return instead (works with 2.7 as well)
* Syntax Error: async, await
Those are reserved keywords now
Solution: Rename. Add a wrapper if it's part of an API.
I happened to look at the failure for gpodder and noticed it
was due to a SyntaxError exception. The code used async as
a parameter, which is now a keyword in python-3.7 (along
with await). I wonder how many other failures are due to
that change in reserved keywords? At least those are easy
I filed a PR upstream and at src.fpo:
I'm not a gpodder maintainer (or user, I just poked it out
of curiosity), so I can't push and build it.
Suppose I were a member of Congress, and suppose I were an idiot. But,
I repeat myself.
