python37: update to version 3.7.16


Python 3.7.16

Release Date: Dec. 6, 2022
This is a security release of Python 3.7

Note: The release you're looking at is Python 3.7.16, a security bugfix release for the legacy 3.7 series. Python 3.11 is now the latest feature release series of Python 3. Get the latest release of 3.11.x here.
Security content in this release

    gh-98739: Updated bundled libexpat to 2.5.0 to fix CVE-2022-43680 (heap use-after-free).
    gh-98517: Port XKCP fix for the buffer overflows in SHA-3 to fix CVE-2022-37454.
    gh-98433: The IDNA codec decoder used on DNS hostnames by socket or asyncio related name resolution functions no longer involves a quadratic algorithm to fix CVE-2022-45061. This prevents a potential CPU denial of service if an out-of-spec excessive length hostname involving bidirectional characters were decoded. Some protocols such as urllib http 3xx redirects potentially allow for an attacker to supply such a name.
    gh-68966: The deprecated mailcap module now refuses to inject unsafe text (filenames, MIME types, parameters) into shell commands to address CVE-2015-20107. Instead of using such text, it will warn and act as if a match was not found (or for test commands, as if the test failed).
    gh-100001: python -m http.server no longer allows terminal control characters sent within a garbage request to be printed to the stderr server log.

No installers

According to the release calendar specified in PEP 537, Python 3.7 is now in the "security fixes only" stage of its life cycle: 3.7 branch only accepts security fixes and releases of those are made irregularly in source-only form until June 2023. Python 3.7 does not receive regular bug fixes anymore, and binary installers are no longer provided for it. Python 3.7.9 was the last full bugfix release of Python 3.7 with binary installers.

python37 py37-html-docs: updated to 3.7.15

Python 3.7.15


gh-97616: Fix multiplying a list by an integer (list *= int): detect the integer overflow when the new allocated length is close to the maximum size. Issue reported by Jordan Limor. Patch by Victor Stinner.
gh-97612: Fix a shell code injection vulnerability in the example script. The script no longer uses a shell to run openssl commands. Issue reported and initial fix by Caleb Shortt. Patch by Victor Stinner.

Core and Builtins

gh-96848: Fix command line parsing: reject -X int_max_str_digits option with no value (invalid) when the PYTHONINTMAXSTRDIGITS environment variable is set to a valid limit. Patch by Victor Stinner.
gh-95778: When ValueError is raised if an integer is larger than the limit, mention the sys.set_int_max_str_digits() function in the error message. Patch by Victor Stinner.


gh-97005: Update bundled libexpat to 2.4.9


gh-96577: Fixes a potential buffer overrun in msilib.

python37 py37-html-docs: updated to 3.7.14

Python 3.7.14

gh-95778: Converting between int and str in bases other than 2 (binary), 4, 8 (octal), 16 (hexadecimal), or 32 such as base 10 (decimal) now raises a ValueError if the number of digits in string form is above a limit to avoid potential denial of service attacks due to the algorithmic complexity. This is a mitigation for CVE-2020-10735.

This new limit can be configured or disabled by environment variable, command line flag, or sys APIs. See the integer string conversion length limitation documentation. The default limit is 4300 digits in string form.

Patch by Gregory P. Smith [Google] and Christian Heimes [Red Hat] with feedback from Victor Stinner, Thomas Wouters, Steve Dower, Ned Deily, and Mark Dickinson.
gh-87389: http.server: Fix an open redirection vulnerability in the HTTP server when an URI path starts with //. Vulnerability discovered, and initial fix proposed, by Hamza Avvan.

Core and Builtins
gh-93065: Fix contextvars HAMT implementation to handle iteration over deep trees.

The bug was discovered and fixed by Eli Libman. See MagicStack/immutables#84 for more details.

gh-91888: Add a new gh role to the documentation to link to GitHub issues.
bpo-47138: Pin Jinja to a version compatible with Sphinx version 2.3.1.

gh-94208: test_ssl is now checking for supported TLS version and protocols in more tests.
bpo-47016: Create a GitHub Actions workflow for verifying bundled pip and setuptools. Patch by Illia Volochii and Adam Turner.

bpo-44022: mod:http.client now avoids infinitely reading potential HTTP headers after a 100 Continue status response from the server.
bpo-43882: The presence of newline or tab characters in parts of a URL could allow some forms of attacks.

Following the controlling specification for URLs defined by WHATWG urllib.parse() now removes ASCII newlines and tabs from URLs, preventing such attacks.
bpo-42988: CVE-2021-3426: Remove the getfile feature of the pydoc module which could be abused to read arbitrary files on the disk (directory traversal vulnerability). Moreover, even source code of Python modules can contain sensitive data like passwords. Vulnerability reported by David Schwörer.
bpo-43285: ftplib no longer trusts the IP address value returned from the server in response to the PASV command by default. This prevents a malicious FTP server from using the response to probe IPv4 address and port combinations on the client network.

Code that requires the former vulnerable behavior may set a trust_server_pasv_ipv4_address attribute on their ftplib.FTP instances to True to re-enable it.
bpo-43075: Fix Regular Expression Denial of Service (ReDoS) vulnerability in urllib.request.AbstractBasicAuthHandler. The ReDoS-vulnerable regex has quadratic worst-case complexity and it allows cause a denial of service when identifying crafted invalid RFCs. This ReDoS issue is on the client side and needs remote attackers to control the HTTP server.

python3{7,8,9}: build fix when include files have invalid UTF-8

I happen to have include/gts.h installed, which includes an accented
ISO-8859-1 character in its copyright message. This trips up the configuration
of Python in pkgsrc.

Ignore files with invalid unicode characters.

Also regenerate one other patch. No revision bump since the result is the same.

lang/python37: Fix for macOS 11 and Apple Silicon

(Apple Silicon being their aarch64 platform.)

This is backport of the same in lang/python39 and lang/python38. Some
parts weren't applicable in 3.7. The script needed some work
on the ffi code. Otherwise, minor changes.

Patches consist of:
 - Upstream work:
 - Fix for to find libbz2.tbd and libz.tbd now that with the
   shared library cache there's nothing in /usr/lib.
 - Addition of __arch64__ case to fix _decimal module. A very similar fix
   has since been committed upstream.

bpo-41304: Fixes python3x._pth being ignored on Windows, caused by the fix for bpo-29778 (CVE-2020-15801).
bpo-29778: Ensure python3.dll is loaded from correct locations when Python is embedded (CVE-2020-15523).
bpo-41004: CVE-2020-14422: The __hash__() methods of ipaddress.IPv4Interface and ipaddress.IPv6Interface incorrectly generated constant hash values of 32 and 128 respectively. This resulted in always causing hash collisions. The fix uses hash() to generate hash values for the tuple of (address, mask length, network address).

On systems where both of the conditions

1. LD_LIBRARY_PATH does _not_ take precedence over DT_RPATH
   (e.g. Linux)
2. A previous libpython with the same major.minor is already installed
   (e.g. a previous version of this package)

hold, the built python will be linked with the installed libpython,
causing it to report an old teeny version in sys.version_info while
staging the install. Then "make package" fails with PLIST mismatches for

pkgsrc knows which version we're building. Pass that down instead.

For platforms that weren't having this problem, no functional change
intended. For platforms that were, this simply restores "make package",
so no PKGREVISION bump.

This affects consumers of tstate->id like the contextvar caching machinery, which could return invalid cached objects under heavy thread load (observed in embedded scenarios).
bpo-39778: Fixed a crash due to incorrect handling of weak references in collections.OrderedDict classes. Patch by Pablo Galindo.
bpo-39382: Fix a use-after-free in the single inheritance path of issubclass(), when the __bases__ of an object has a single reference, and so does its first item. Patch by Yonatan Goldschmidt.
bpo-39606: Fix regression caused by fix for bpo-39386, that prevented calling aclose on an async generator that had already been closed or exhausted.
bpo-39510: Fix segfault in readinto() method on closed BufferedReader.

bpo-39386: Prevent double awaiting of async iterator.
bpo-38588: Fix possible crashes in dict and list when calling PyObject_RichCompareBool().
bpo-39031: When parsing an lifnode, lineno and col_offset of the node now point to the lifkeyword and not to its condition, making it consistent with the fnode. Patch by Lysandros Nikolaou.
bpo-38610: Fix possible crashes in several list methods by holding strong references to list elements when calling PyObject_RichCompareBool().
bpo-39794: Add ithout-decimal-contextvar build option. This enables a thread-local rather than a coroutine local context.
bpo-39769: The compileall.compile_dir() function ddir parameter and the compileall command line flag -d no longer write the wrong pathname to the generated pyc file for submodules beneath the root of the directory tree being compiled. This fixes a regression introduced with Python 3.5.
bpo-30566: Fix IndexError when trying to decode an invalid string with punycode codec.
bpo-39649: Remove obsolete check for __args__ in bdb.Bdb.format_stack_entry.
bpo-27657: The original fix for bpo-27657, קix urlparse() with numeric paths(GH-16839) included in 3.7.6, inadvertently introduced a behavior change that broke several third-party packages relying on the original undefined parsing behavior. The change is reverted in 3.7.7, restoring the behavior of 3.7.5 and earlier releases.
bpo-21016: The pydoc and trace modules now use the sysconfig module to get the path to the Python standard library, to support uncommon installation path like /usr/lib64/python3.9/ on Fedora. Patch by Jan Matjek.

bpo-39242: Updated the Gmane domain from to which is used for examples of NNTP news reader server and nntplib tests.
bpo-39152: Fix ttk.Scale.configure([name]) to return configuration tuple for name or all options. Giovanni Lombardo contributed part of the patch.
bpo-39198: If an exception were to be thrown in Logger.isEnabledFor (say, by asyncio timeouts or stopit) , the logging global lock may not be released appropriately, resulting in deadlock. This change wraps that block of code with try...finally to ensure the lock is released.
bpo-39191: Perform a check for running loop before starting a new task in loop.run_until_complete() to fail fast; it prevents the side effect of new task spawning before exception raising.
bpo-38871: Correctly parenthesize filter-based statements that contain lambda expressions in mod:lib2to3. Patch by Dong-hee Na.
bpo-39142: A change was made to logging.config.dictConfig to avoid converting instances of named tuples to ConvertingTuple. It assumed that named tuples are too specialised to be treated like ordinary tuples; if a user of named tuples requires ConvertingTuple functionality, they will have to implement that themselves in their named tuple class.
bpo-38971: Open issue in the BPO indicated a desire to make the implementation of at parity with, which implements a try/except to assure file stream gets closed before an exception is raised.
bpo-39057: urllib.request.proxy_bypass_environment() now ignores leading dots and no longer ignores a trailing newline.
bpo-39056: Fixed handling invalid warning category in the -W option. No longer import the re module if it is not needed.

bpo-39144: The ctags and etags build targets both include Modules/_ctypes and Python standard library source files.
bpo-38597: distutils will no longer statically link vcruntime140.dll when a redistributable version is unavailable. All future releases of CPython will include a copy of this DLL to ensure distributed extensions can continue to load.
bpo-38380: Update Windows builds to use SQLite 3.31.1

python3[4567]: find_library() fixes; remove -stack_size from LDFLAGS on Darwin.

PkgSrc changes:
* Make find_library() consitant for all Python versions:
  - Fallback to clang, when gcc is not installed.
  - Find libraries in PkgSrc prefix.
* Do not use -stack_size; it ends up in 'pythonNN-config --ldflags', and some
  modules fail to build.

python37: updated to 3.7.1

Notable changes in Python 3.7.1

Starting in 3.7.1, Py_Initialize() now consistently reads and respects all of the same environment settings as Py_Main() (in earlier Python versions, it respected an ill-defined subset of those environment variables, while in Python 3.7.0 it didn read any of them due to bpo-34247). If this behavior is unwanted, set Py_IgnoreEnvironmentFlag to 1 before calling Py_Initialize().

In 3.7.1 the C API for Context Variables was updated to use PyObject pointers.

xml.dom.minidom and xml.sax modules no longer process external entities by default.
