Place an RHupdates directory at the same level as the RedHat directory on your
NFS server and then put the updated python files from the updates disk in that
directory.

anaconda-devel-list
(https://listman.redhat.com/mailman/listinfo/anaconda-devel-list) is a better
place for this than bugzilla, though.
