Subject Python update for testing
Date Thu, 01 Sep 2016 18:17:40 GMT

The python we are carrying for AOO 4.2.0 (2.7.8) has many security
vulnerabilities which may or may not have an effect on AOO.

In order to make future updates and particularly for Python 2.7.9, in
fact, we also needed to update OpenSSL, so now that Don updated
OpenSSL the basic update became possible. I tested the update
on FreeBSD but I had to hack for Windows buildfiles and this requires

People that regularly build windows please try this patch:

If there is no feedback I could try committing the change and keep an
eye on the buildbots, although this is certainly not too elegant.

Once this change is done, it may be relatively easy to update Python
all the way to 2.7.12, the only big change to be aware of is a path
change for the Windows build files.
