What do you mean by support? The only thing EPEL supports (using the
term loosely) is enabling Fedora packagers to branch and build their
packages for EPEL. Any maintainer of the Fedora python3.9 package (or
any related package necessary for bootstrapping) can request an epel7
branch and start building. The main thing to be aware of is to comply
with EPEL policy , especially the part about not
replacing/disturbing the base distribution. RHEL7 includes python3,
so an epel7 python3.9 build would need to ensure it doesn't conflict
with any filesystem paths from that package.

I am posting to gather if there is enough support to provide python39 in EPEL.
Currently, EL7 users wanting to run modern python apps under uwsgi can only use
uwsgi-plugin-pyton36@epel. New Django releases are expected to require 3.8 or higher.
There is a rh-python38 SCL, but this version does not have a compatible uwsgi-plugin.
I gather that there is interest
in getting python39 in EPEL. I talked to Miro Hrončok, who was willing to work on
packaging, if there would be sufficient support from EPEL.
