[Python-Dev] Starting to use gcc-8 on upstream Python project CI
So is the request simply to use gcc 8 instead of what Travis uses as the
default gcc? IOW change
somehow to use gcc8 specifically? Since it's only used for the code
coverage build I don't think anyone would mind if you changed it. Just
open an issue on bugs.python.org and then submit a PR to change it.
