3.7.5rc1 cutoff ahead

A reminder: it is time for the next quarterly maintenance release of Python 3.7. The cutoff for 3.7.5rc1 is scheduled for this coming Monday (2019-09-16) by the end of day AOE. Please review open issues and ensure that any that you believe need to be addressed in 3.7.5 are either resolved or marked as a release blocker. Any assistance you can provide in helping resolve issues will be greatly appreciated. Following the rc1 cutoff, changes merged to the 3.7 branch will be released in 3.7.6 three months from now unless you mark the issue as a release blocker prior to 3.7.5 final, planned for release on 2019-09-30 and explain why the change should be cherry-picked into the final release.

Thanks to everyone who has been helping to ensure the continued success of Python 3.7! Our users truly appreciate it and are showing their confidence in us by the rapid adoption of these latest releases.

P.S. A number of core developers are participating in this year’s core developer sprint taking place this week in London. So it is a good time to catch many of us in the same place at the same time (and British Summer Time, at that).
