https://github.com/aio-libs/aiohttp already supports asyncio. Why do I need this for asyncio?

Anyway, I see that Issues are disabled for the repo. Is that the new way to develop? /s

aiohttp isn't just a client---its also a server library, and framework for creating async applications.

Because of this, its a bit easier to use requests since that's a dedicated client with all the design choices done to suit that use case.

Also the issues are closed because the project hasn't been released yet. It's being developed in the open, but its not ready! Documentation isn't even written for the new features.
