I packaged my first release. wipes sweat off of face

Go get it here:

Python 3.8.0a1 is the first of four planned alpha releases of Python 3.8,

the next feature release of Python. During the alpha phase, Python 3.8 remains under heavy development: additional features will be added and existing features may be modified or deleted. Please keep in mind that this is a preview release and its use is not recommended for production environments. The next preview release, 3.8.0a2, is planned for 2019-02-24.

Apart from building the Mac installers, @nad helped me a lot with the process, thank you! @EWDurbin was super quick providing me with all required access and fixing a Unicode problem I found in Salt, thank you!

Finally, this release was made on a train to Düsseldorf. There’s a PyPy sprint there. The train is pretty cool, makes this “Wasm! Wasm!” sound.

Congrats! It looks good from my limited testing, and I am building docker images with the 3.8 alpha.
