SUSE supports all packages until the EOL of the respective Service Pack or
Product they are contained in.

Even if upstream discontinues support.

So we will continue to support python 2.7 there basically until the EOL of SLE12.

In SLE15 we have moved Python2 to the "Python2" module with SP1 in preparation for an earlier EOL.

Ciao, Marcus
