I agree. There are a lot of scripts that depends on python3 and unless
you can validate that all scripts works with new Python 3.7, it's not
going to happen soon.

Slackware-Current is also staying at 3.6.x for now. It's better to sync
with -current so it ease our job when validating scripts for next
Slackware 15.0 repository during development cycle.
