Hello Everyone,

As you know the gate is breaking due to  Python3.8 drop[1][2], which we discussed in the TC channel
and meeting[3]. TC is preparing the guidelines on not dropping  Python3.8 in 2023.2 pti.

Meanwhile, governance guidelines are prepared, this email is a heads-up to hold the
dropping of Python3.8 from your project/repo. Do not bump the min py version in
setup.cfg (do not bump version in python_requires ).

@Release team,
It will be helpful if you can check/hold the release of any project/lib dropping the  Python3.8.
