 My understanding is that you're trying to do some Python QA in the
 jhbuild moduleset, but what's the point of testing Python in GNOME?
 Shouldn't the focus be on the GNOME stack instead of its dependencies?

Unlike GNOME and Linux, Python does not use odd version numbers for
development versions.  Thus 2.5 is the latest production version of
Python, rather than the latest development version.
