Well, it'd be nice to have plans to get Django 3 compat for the end of
this cycle, otherwise, we'll get again stuck in downstream
distributions, just like we've been stuck in Debian with a broken
Horizon for nearly the whole of the last summer (due to Django 2.2 and
the new view class instead of method thing breaking all ...).

I guess we're all being super tired of Django breaking the world every 2
weeks. At least, I am. But I don't think we have any alternatives...
(and no, I do not have time, neither probably the skills, to work on
this, sorry...)
