EPEL: Python34 moving to Python36

Over the last 5 days, Troy Dawson, Jeroen van Meeuwen, Carl W George,
and several helpers have gotten nearly all of the python34 packages
moves over to python36 in EPEL-7. They are being included in 6 Bodhi
pushes because of a limitation in Bodhi for the text size of packages
in an include.

The current day for these package groups to move into EPEL regular is
April 2nd. We would like to have all tests we find in the next week or
so also added so that the updates can occur in a large group without
too much breakage.

Please heavily test them by doing the following:
Stage 1 Testing
Install RHEL, CentOS, or Scientific Linux 7 onto a TEST system.
Install or enable the EPEL repository for this system
Install various packages you would normally use
yum --enablerepo=epel-testing update
Report problems to <a href="mailto:epel- ... at lists dot fedoraproject.org">epel- ... at lists dot fedoraproject.org</a>
Stage 2 Testing
Check for any updated testing instructions on this blog or EPEL-devel list.
Install RHEL, CentOS, or Scientific Linux 7 onto a TEST system.
Install or enable the EPEL repository for this system
yum install python34
yum --enablerepo=epel-testing update
Report problems to <a href="mailto:epel- ... at lists dot fedoraproject.org">epel- ... at lists dot fedoraproject.org</a>
Stage 3 Testing
Check for any updated testing instructions on this blog or EPEL-devel list.
Install RHEL, CentOS, or Scientific Linux 7 onto a TEST system.
Install or enable the EPEL repository for this system
yum install python36
yum --enablerepo=epel-testing update
Report problems to <a href="mailto:epel- ... at lists dot fedoraproject.org">epel- ... at lists dot fedoraproject.org</a>
This should cover the three most common scenarios. Other scenarios
exist and will require some sort of intervention to work around. We
will outline them as they come up.

Many Many Thanks go to Troy, Jeroen, Carl, and the many people on the
python team who made a copr and did many of the initial patches to
make this possible.
