Pinning cf-units>=3.0 in the development environment for ESMValCore makes the environment unsolvable for Python 3.6. This is fine, since we will be retiring support for Python 3.6 in 2.4, but the GA full dev test fails. This would be an unexpected behavior for any user that wants to use ESMValTool in full development mode, forcing Python 3.6 in their environment, but chances that happens are close to nil so I don't think we should say anything in the documentation?

The pin to cfunits>=3 is already in effect, right? Is this fine? Does that mean we should retire Python 3.6 already with ESMValTool 2.3.0? Do we need a working lower pin for now?

@ESMValGroup/esmvaltool-coreteam, do you have some opinion on this?

we've not retired it officially in ESMValCore but that pin makes it virtually impossible to get a Py3.6 env done for ESMValCore in development mode (we don't even have the nightly GA test for Py 3.6 anymore). It is, however, possible to still have Py3.6 with the released ESMValCore 2.3.0 hence with the future release of ESMValTool too, just not with ESMValCore installed from the latest development branch
