This request was not resolved in time for the current release.
Red Hat invites you to ask your support representative to
propose this request, if still desired, for consideration in
the next release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.

We are not providing a matplotlib wx backend in rhel-7.x at this time, see also https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1309744
