Dear openSUSE Tumbleweed users,

It has been a long road, but we have reached the destination: Python
3.8 has been checked in to Factory after the Staging was finally
passed. We spent two more days working out a bunch of non-ring failures
as well, trying to make the switch as smooth as possible - and openQA

python 3.8 and is currently in progress of being synced out to the

As this is a major jump, I'm (unfortunately) almost sure the update
won't reach you without you noticing it. There is potential for many
