All you need to do is click the "GitHub Login" link at the top of any MacPorts Trac page, or visit: https://trac.macports.org/login
Then you can add comments to tickets or file new tickets.

I think we already know that using py36-readline causes a crash, and that upstream may have already fixed the problem and just needs to release a new version.
Incidentally, it seems that py36-gnureadline replaces py36-readline, and the question of removing the entire py-readline port seems to have stalled:
But the current version of py36-gnureadline has the same problem.
I don't think we need any additional tickets describing the same problem.
