Hi all,

(you are probably getting this as you are Debian maintainer for one of
the packages in [1], declaring a dependency on cherryp3 -- sorry for
the noise)

I eventually actually did ;).

The good news:

We now have an updated package in experimental (8.9.1-1). Please let
me know if there are any severe problems with that new package -- if
not, this will eventually go to unstable.

However (aka bad news):

It seems that 8.9.1 (most recent version is 12.0.1) is the last
upstream that can be packaged in the current manner:

- Since v9, the httpd/wscgiserver part has gone to a separate upstream
'cheroot' [2].
- Later versions also require python packages not in Debian yet [3].

So I guess, for the future, the 1st step would be an ITP for the new
cheroot upstream?
