As Pedro said we need to stick the same version on OCA : 3.8.2

Strong -1 from my side. As long as Odoo officially supports 3.6 we must support and test on 3.6 to reach the widest audience.

If we test on 3.6 and not 3.8, the probability that an OCA module will break for 3.8 users is extremely low.
If we test on 3.8 and not 3.6, the probability that people will start using 3.8 features that will not work on 3.6 is extremely high.

Alternatively we could imagine running the Odoo jobs on 3.6 and the OCB jobs on 3.8. But then why not 3.9...

If we had unlimited travis resources we'd test on all python versions, but we are already very constrained by the concurrent workers on travis so that's not feasible unfortunately.
