Gemnasium Dependency Scanning for Python3.8+


I am trying to establish dependency scanning for a simple Flask project using Python 3.8.8. But I have not been able to figure out a hack.

The documentation states that only Python3.6 is supported. Dependency Scanning | GitLab

I have been trying to somehow install a newwer python version and remapping but have gotten nowhere. Does anyone have experience with this and is able to share how they got it to work or should I just abandon the idea of using GitLabs Dependency scanning for recent pythons?

We are upgrading to 3.9 as the default for gemnasium-python in 15.0: Deprecate old python in dependency scanning (!78502) · Merge requests · / GitLab · GitLab

In the meantime we have a temporary container for 3.9: Temporary container for 3.9 python (#328446) · Issues · / GitLab · GitLab

Additionally, we have a feature request discussing possible ways we can support multiple python versions: Decide how to support multiple versions of Python in gemnasium-python (plan not action) (#328263) · Issues · / GitLab · GitLab
