The reason I asked this question is because clients I talk to in the
enterprise space are almost all exclusively RH9/RHEL clients, and many
have major reservations about installing anything non-RH 'approved' as
they feel they have some security assurances using this, and certainly
RH are reasonable sincere with their efforts here.

If ZC say Zope is approved and test with version X of Python, then this
too has some weight in their minds.

We have our own distro and stability within the flux of Zope, Plone and
a large number of enterprise-targeted products is probably the major
sales pitch.

However, having to fork off the main Fedora branch in regard to Python
dependencies (which directly affect Anaconda, up2date, GTK, and most of
the desktop applets) has major implications for how we maintain our distro.

So, I ask again, what is the official view on Python 2.4, and if there's
a roadmap as to when it will become blessed.
