Description of problem:
Build of the latest python-cryptography (required for the security bug 1267554) requires python-cffi >= 1.1.0
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I am having a similar issue but for bcrypt which I will want to use on EPEL7 and which then requires cffi >= 1.1.0.
Is upgrading epel7 to >= 1.1.0 something that entirely out of the question or something that can be discussed?
