The following test script works with Python 3.7 (and older), but triggers an endless loop with Python 3.8:


#!/usr/bin/python3

import shutil
import os

os.mkdir('/dev/shm/t')
os.mkdir('/dev/shm/t/pg')

with open('/dev/shm/t/pg/pol', 'w+') as f:
    f.write('pol')

shutil.copytree('/dev/shm/t/pg', '/dev/shm/t/pg/somevendor/1.0')


The important point is probably that 'pg' gets copied into a subdirectory of itsself. While this worked in Python up to 3.7, doing the same in Python 3.8 runs into an endless loop:

# python3 /home/abuild/rpmbuild/SOURCES/test.py
