Are there significant issues with packaging python34 for epel6? or just
nobody wanted to do it yet?
Mainly the latter I think - most folks needing to support EL6 so far
have been able to get by with Python 2, containers, SCLs or conda
P.P.S. I realize rh-python34 is available on RHSCL, but it didn't
support "python3" in scripts...
Script shebang lines can be supported via SCLs, but they need to run a
wrapper script that implicitly enables the SCL, rather than just being
a symlink to the SCL's Python executable. I don't recall the exact
incantation myself, but hopefully someone else will be able to chime
in with that.
