lurking on this list for a while, and I wanted to bring
myself up to date. I noticed some talk of a community SCL
for a “latest” Python, which would be a non-patched pure
build of Python that is kept up-to-date by the community.
Where is that at? Who is leading it? How can I help?
background, we’ve used rh-python34 for some time, but our
security team recently dinged us for sticking with Python
3.4.2, and my DevOps team (who have less time due to
tickets), just recompiled Python 3.4.6 blind to get past the
security problem. I would have argued we should move to
rh-python35, but that would eventually suffer the same
problem. What we need is a distribution that keeps up to
date, but is still distributed as an rpm.
