Python is an interpreted, interactive, object-oriented programming 
language. It incorporates modules, exceptions, dynamic typing, very high 
level dynamic data types, and classes. Python combines remarkable power 
with very clear syntax. It has interfaces to many system calls and 
libraries, as well as to various window systems, and is extensible in C or 
C++. It is also usable as an extension language for applications that need 
a programmable interface.

This is an update to the latest 2.7 bugfix release:

The components required for building binary extensions and embedding libpython
in applications are now in a separate python-devel package.
