Hi all,

When I run python3 --version on Toolforge I see version 3.5.3 is installed. Because python 3.5 reached the end of its life in September 2020, pip is really unhappy about that.

Is there a way to use a later version of python3 on Toolforge? If not, are there plans to upgrade the OS and upgrade python with it?

PS: I know from Help:Toolforge/Python that 3.7.3 is available on Kubernetes, but I am dealing with scripts that are submitted via jsub and not k8s, and the overhead of converting them is prohibitive.
