After reading this issue:, I think SQLite 3.26.0 could be the minimal version for Python 3.10.

I have checked the following distributions

CentOS 8: stable : 8.3.2011: 3.26.0
Debian 10: stable : 10 : 3.27.2
Ubuntu 20.04: stable : 20.04: 3.31.1

CentOS 7: oldstable : 7.9.2009: 3.7.17
Debian 9: oldstable : 9.13: 3.16.2

This would make sqlite3 module unusable for many users. We have already increased the minimal required version in 3.10 and am opposed to do this change.

I also don't understand what part of msg370266 made you think that this is a reasonable change. The gist of the previous version increase was a failed test in older SQLite versions. As far as I'm aware, there is no such an issue to warrant such a step increase for minimum version requirement (from 3.7.15 to 3.26.0)

Hi Berker,

No problem, that was just a question/suggestion, and I fully understand your remarks. 

Thanks for your feedback.
