first steps done:
- updated 3.8 to 3.8.2
- updated 3.7 to 3.7.7
- updated also their python doc
- upload of all of them is in progress
- I assume we can drop 3.5
- for the time being no need to update 2.7 and 3.6
(we are just one version behind)
- verify which python packages we need to build/rebuild
currently we have
and ~ 225 other *python* packages (plus 10 for python35)
- verify the fedora python-unversioned-command
