@raymond, as to your question in msg350586: The release installers are generally build on the oldest release of the OS targeted by the installer. That's to ensure that the binaries actually work there.

It should be possible to build on newer releases, but that will require patches to CPython because the build will otherwise use symbols not available on older releases.
