> Would this be a hard drop, i.e. would installing 3.8 be prevented in Windows 7? Or would it install but require users to manually install KB2533623?

That's the question I'm asking :)

Python 3.9 is currently going to be a hard drop, according to our policy, and if Python 3.8 slips by 3 months then it will also be a hard drop unless we make an exception to the policy.

Paul's comment suggests we should avoid slipping/make the exception, and that it's okay to require the update, which is basically where I'm at too (provided the buildbot team are willing to keep an EOL'd OS running for as long as 3.8 is supported).
