We're not prioritizing this issue at the moment.

Comment 18 Petr Viktorin 2019-08-13 13:14:42 UTC
We got a suggestion to link to libpython.a statically, rather than dynamically.
We should do that, but the team's current priorities are with FIPS patches, so this will take some time.

Comment 19 Petr Viktorin 2019-10-08 13:05:20 UTC
This is a big change and may not be backwards compatible across all uses of Python.
We're preparing a Fedora system-wide change for this.
If that goes well, we will use it in the Python 3.8 module.
After that we can talk about updating the system Python in RHEL 8.

Comment 22 Karl Abbott 2020-01-28 14:23:54 UTC
Acked from a product management perspective. Looking forward to getting this in RHEL.
