With Python 2 now officially retired, it's time to change the installer behavior.  With the merged change, as of Python 3.9.0 (alpha 6) the macOS installers will now update the Current version symmlink in the /Library/Frameworks Python being installed.  Since this would be a change in behavior that could affect current users of Python 3.8.x or 3.7.x, I think we should not backport this to those versions.  Thanks again for the report!
