The 2.3.5 rpm provides list is substantially out of
sync with the 2.3.4-14 provides list for CEntOS, making
it impossible (for me) to use this rpm to upgrade my

Note: we do not maintain 2.3 any longer.

The RPM can't really be that specific -- it
wouldn't work on other platforms or even likely older or
newer versions of CentOS...'s RPM needs to be a
bit more generic than that I think.

I'd recommend either trying to get Red Hat to push up an
update to 3.4.5 (which they arguably should have done as
errata), or CentOS if they just haven't kept up with the
RHES release.  However, Red Hat hasn't been very good about
updating to new minor versions of Python historicly, even
though by their criteria they would seem to be eligible.

Alternatively, you could take things into your own hands and
get the CentOS RPM and the 2.3.5 Python source, and udpate
the CentOS RPM to 2.3.5.  That is probably your best option.
