Thanks for posting this!

my account (few hardcoded paths). But I can help in bootstrapping it if
there's a general consensus on that (maybe having the python project
official release build on susebuild?).

Integration into the release process will be up to the current release
managers (Larry Hastings for 3.4/3.5 and Benjamin Peterson for 2.7). That
may be worthwhile as a distro independent way of publishing "opt builds" of
Python for Linux platforms (I'd suggest using the softwarecollections.org
convention and put them under "/opt/psf/pythonXY").

Note that I think it's worth pursuing this as an integration testing tool,
regardless of whether or not we end up incorporating it into the release

build to insulate the two). It's very similar and I'll post more details
when ready.

Thanks again!
