Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 627301
Rebase python from 2.6.5 to 2.6.6 in RHEL 6.1
Last modified: 2016-05-31 21:40:22 EDT
Description of problem:
RHEL 6.0 has python-2.6.5
python-2.6.6 was released yesterday:
It was intended as a bugfix release, and contains a few dozen bugfixes on top of 2.6.5; see:
from "What's New in Python 2.6.6?" through to "What's New in Python 2.6.5?"
It would be nice. It is a pity that it is not possible to rebase to python 2.7 - it's a LTS release.

FWIW, I currently do an unofficial, not-supported-by-Red-Hat build of python 2.6 for RHEL5, within EPEL5. This is a personal side project.
Would there be interest if I did a similar build of python 2.7 for RHEL 6? for RHEL 5? (no promises; again, this is a personal side-project).
"Would there be interest if I did a similar build of python 2.7 for RHEL 6?"
As for me it would be very nice of you if you provide such packages :)
Many web projects are using Python and availability of LTS versions would be appreciated.
If you provides support, it's almost as if RH provides it ;)
But seriously, for many projects, the availability of well build and supported packages is just enough.
