Hi Dan. May I ask a question? Is your
security team looking for a fix to a specific security
problem or CVE or are they asking that you run the latest
version as a rule?

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.
