Hi everyone,

I was working on salt to get it in shape before Debian freezes for the
buster release. The current status is:

 * Pushed a building python3-tornado4 version to the tornado4
   branch on salsa [tornado4].

 * Pushed current state of salt 2018.3.3 packaging to
   the wip-2018.3 branch [wip-2018.3]

 * salt builds against python3-tornado on Debian stretch, but
   fails on Debian unstable against python3-tornado4

 * Ignoring the test failures does not help: The salt-minion
   will fail to start on unstable

 * Built packages for Ubuntu 18.10 (Python 3.6)
   and 19.04 (Python 3.7) [ppa]:
   python3-tornado4 builds, but salt not

Remaining work:

 * 4 tornado tests are failing on Python 3.7 on Debian unstable.
   See upstream bug #2536 [2536]

 * Analyze and fix salt test failures on Debian unstable
   (might be either tornado4 rename or Python 3.7 related)

Help of getting salt working is appreciated.
