Package: python3-slixmpp
Version: 1.3.0+git20180331-1
Severity: serious
User: debian-qa at lists.debian.org
Usertags: piuparts
Control: block 902788 with -1 


during a test with piuparts I noticed your package failed to install. As
per definition of the release team this makes the package too buggy for
a release, thus the severity.

>From the attached log (scroll to the bottom...):

  Setting up python3-slixmpp (1.3.0+git20180331-1) ...
    File "/usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/slixmpp/plugins/xep_0009/remote.py", line 423
      def async(self, callback):
  SyntaxError: invalid syntax
  dpkg: error processing package python3-slixmpp (--configure):
   installed python3-slixmpp package post-installation script subprocess returned error exit status 1
  Errors were encountered while processing:

"async" has become a reserved keyword in Python 3.7
