Proposed patch replaces all occurrences of sys.version[:3] with '%d.%d' % sys.version_info[:2]. The former doesn't work with non-one-digit versions (such as 3.10 and 10.1).

Could anyone please make a review? We should solve this issue before releasing 3.10.

On a related note, I think that should get the same treatment.

Agree, that should be included in the patch.

Update patch uses less cryptic formatting expressions (thanks SilentGhost for suggestion), fixes (thanks Andrew), and fixes yet few files.
