Unofficial Python backports for Debian


This repository provides unofficial backports (and forward-ports and new upstreams) of Python versions for Debian.

These are meant to only be used in limited circumstances, typically with the use of venv or tools such as pipsi and tox. python3-* libraries in Debian may or may not work, and some may run more slowly due to missing builds of C extensions. Compatibility is not guaranteed. You have been warned.

These packages are not maintained or endorsed by the Debian Python maintainers. Please do not contact them or the Debian BTS for any issues you may have with these packages.
