What do you mean by support? The only thing EPEL supports (using
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 believe the confusion is my fault.
By "support" I've meant: Does EPEL-devel generally agree that adding Python
to EPEL 7 is a good idea, even if we don't phase out Python 3.4 at the same time?
E.g. building RPMs for Python 3.9 in EPEL would require redefining %__python3
