Re: Python 3.6 retirement

This kinda rings a bell to me. I remember a bug a submitted about OpenSSL and Solaris 10. 
It seems it is a known issue by the OpenSSL team:

PR pkg/55688 was open about it. Not 100% sure it's related.

I've built Python 3.6-3.9 on SunOS 10 on a virtual machine. Problems encountered:
- I had to build OpenSSL with 'no-asm'
- '' didn't build for any of the pythons because -lcrypt couldn't be found (there is one in /usr/lib)

I don't have much experience with SunOS, but I still think Python 3.6 should be gone.

Kind regards,
