    While looking over the provision.sh file

          echo Installing python and pip
          sudo DEBIAN_FRONTEND=noninteractive apt-get install -qq -y python python-pip

    What version of Python need be installed?

    I have a user installed version 3.7 that runs from Windows:

    Note the version date(s) that didn't seemed to have gotten updated by their release team

    Python 3.7.4 (tags/v3.7.4:e09359112e, Jul  8 2019, 19:29:22) [MSC v.1916 32 bit (Intel)] on win32
    Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.

    VSCode somhow loads a version 2.7 that isn't (intentionally) installed on this PC - Maybe inside WSL?

    rgc@DESKTOP-R7T0VUC:/mnt/c/Users/robin/EĀ­spruino$ python
    Python 2.7.12 (default, Aug 22 2019, 16:36:40) 
    [GCC 5.4.0 20160609] on linux2
    Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.

    Could this version be part of the issue?
    Could the dynamic loading of Python during the build have some sort of delay that blocks the scripts from executing timely?
