Stefan Krah (who doesn't have access rights here, and is the author of the C _decimal module) asked me to transmit me this request:
The capsule API does not meet my testing standards, since I've focused
on the upstream mpdecimal in the last couple of months.

Additionally, I'd like to refine the API, perhaps together with the
Arrow community.

The relevant diff is here:

I can turn it into a PR but first I'd like to gather reactions here.

+1 fron me.

+1 for reverting these before 3.10. See also @mattip's comments on #41324, and #43060.

+1 from me. 3.10.0 final haven't been released, so no one will be affected.

I have a concern about the current _decimal C API: bpo-43060. I'm fine with removing it in Python 3.10, and add it back fixed in Python 3.11 or later.

Go ahead.

skrah is still a bpo user with an CLA-signed account linked to his github account.  So he can post here and, I believe, open a PR as a contributor.  But if, under the current circumstances, he feels more comfortable using Antoine as a go between, then I thank Antoine for doing so.

Terry, the list of roles in is empty, which I take it to mean that Stefan doesn't have any access rights on this issue tracker (except to read issues).  Other users all seem to have the "User" role.

OK.  I see no structural difference between his page and yours,  No 'Roles' field, no 'User' entry, on either page, nor on mine.  So you must be an admin who sees extra info.  In any case, the last part of my comment stands.

FWIW, I have the roles "User,Developer,Coordinator" according to my user page.
You (Terry) have the roles "User,Developer".
Perhaps the "Coordinator" role explains I see things you don't see (it's a better explanation than believing I am a psychic :-D).
