Hello Jan,
Thanks for the reply. Apologies for double-posting but the list did not 
mail back to me my first post I assumed it had failed as I'd 
accidentally sent it in html, so I resent it in plain text.

Do you happen to know if there is a particular build order for the 
packages, e.g rh-python38 followed by installing it and then building 
rh-python38-python and so on or can they be built independently. The 
intention is to just get a base python39 running with pip39 so a 
virtualenv can be created. After that, all required packages will be 
installed with pip to avoid messing with the base o/s installation.

Thanks for the tip about rh. I'd already guessed that one. Locally I'll 
start with rh but, if I succeed, I'll switch it to something else and 
rebuild before rolling it out.
