[scl.org] (Lack of) progress on a rolling release Python SCL



Hi folks,

A while back I started working on a rolling release Python SCL to track the latest stable release of CPython: https://github.com/ncoghlan/pyscl-devel

While I got a fully automated build running locally in mock, the release field modification trick I used to handle bootstrapping new feature releases doesn't work in COPR or koji, so the bootstrapping needs to be redesigned to mutate the bootstrap package names and add appropriate Obsoletes definitions to the real packages in order to work with those backends (I'd prefer the bootstrapping to be idempotent if you rerun it with unchanged sources, so I don't like any approaches based on actually bumping the release number).

However, for a variety of reasons, I'm unlikely to complete that work myself anytime soon, so this post is mainly a notice for anyone else interested in the topic that I'm no longer working on it, but my work so far can be found at the repo link above.

Cheers,
Nick.
