Comment (by randy at linuxfromscratch.org):

 Be it known that I am against using the 2.5 version in BLFS-6.2.0.
 There are API changes that affect code and could affect Python's
 interaction with other packages. Please review

 My understanding is 2.4.4 fixes all the security issues without
 introducting API changes.

 My observations are based on the fact that Python is such a
 heavy dependency on many, many packages.

 I could be wrong, but is there really time to test the API
 changes in the 2.5 series?
