[docs] [issue25255] Security of CPython Builds

New submission from phelix bitcoin:

A description of the build and release process for CPython binaries (e.g. for Windows) would be great. Maybe I am missing something? I could not find any information other than the 14 years old PEP 101 which says: "Notify the experts that they can start building binaries." 

E.g. how is it ensured there are no backdoors in the binaries?

Background: For the Namecoin project we are currently discussing the potential necessity of reproducible builds.
