This is all very well, but Python does have a huge wealth of contributed
programs and products. These are packaged separately by the
python4linux group (and mirrored by FourThought). See below for the FTP
site. The RPMs there were originally developed by Oliver
Andrich and Jeff Rush, and updated by the python4linux group as
improvements emerge. 

The RPMs on our FTP are from Oliver Andrich's, Jeff Rush, Fourthought,
Chad Netzer, and the rest of the python4linux group.  There is nothing
from Red Hat.  Andrich included all the patches to Sept 1999 or so, and
many useful build options.
