I am reposting the original document as a pdf since I can no longer edit the original post. 

New additions and updates will be posted here.  Spyder is currently at version 4.1.5 .

I have updated many packages in the base/main arcgispro-py3 environment.  I don't use a clone.

Currently tested with numpy version ... 1.19.1.  Python has been upgraded from 3.6.9 to 3.1.12 (the last of the 3.6 series).
