Hi Cygwin package manager.

I'm on my new laptop, and installing packages as necessary.

After installing python37-requests, my program raised an exception like this:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "", line 1, in <module>
    import requests
  File "/usr/lib/python3.7/site-packages/requests/", line
100, in <module>
    check_compatibility(urllib3.__version__, chardet_version,
  File "/usr/lib/python3.7/site-packages/requests/", line
85, in check_compatibility
    raise Exception("You need either charset_normalizer or chardet installed")
Exception: You need either charset_normalizer or chardet installed

I did not see python37-requests depends or pulling it
charset_normalizer or chardet during installation. Is that

Thank you.
