install the packages from (either by hand or using yum/yast):


The interpreters will install under so it will leave the system python 


XXXXX is the svn revision. Once installed you can use them just sourcing the 

$> . /opt/opt-python-svnXXXXX-2.7a0/opt-python-svnXXXXX-env.sh
$> python
Python 2.7a0 (trunk, May 24 2009, 21:18:39)
[GCC 4.3.2 [gcc-4_3-branch revision 141291]] on linux2
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.

There is a web page containing the build results (including a small simple 
smoke test):

Module developer can use these build to test against the more up to date 
python source and anticipating bugs.
Developer can use it to run regression/integration tests.

I hope that will help,
