On macOS, Python is only affected if "MAC_OS_X_VERSION_MIN_REQUIRED < MAC_OS_X_VERSION_10_5". Is it still the case in 2020?

Copy/paste of socketmodule.c:

/* On systems on which getaddrinfo() is believed to not be thread-safe,
   (this includes the getaddrinfo emulation) protect access with a lock.

   getaddrinfo is thread-safe on Mac OS X 10.5 and later. Originally it was
   a mix of code including an unsafe implementation from an old BSD's
   libresolv. In 10.5 Apple reimplemented it as a safe IPC call to the
   mDNSResponder process. 10.5 is the first be UNIX '03 certified, which
   includes the requirement that getaddrinfo be thread-safe. See issue #25924.

   It's thread-safe in OpenBSD starting with 5.4, released Nov 2013:
   http://www.openbsd.org/plus54.html

   It's thread-safe in NetBSD starting with 4.0, released Dec 2007:

http://cvsweb.netbsd.org/bsdweb.cgi/src/lib/libc/net/getaddrinfo.c.diff?r1=1.82&r2=1.83
