Dropping Support for Python 3.6 in 23.2


Hello cloud-init community,

Our policy regarding Python versions is to support a Python version
for six years after release,
after which we stop testing that version and may introduce breaking
changes[1]. Since Python 3.6
was released a little over six years ago, we expect to make the recent
cloud-init release 23.1 the
last to support Python 3.6.

If this causes hardship, please reach out ASAP.

Brett Holman
