Basically, I have a server running 12.04 LTS, and for some reason apt only has python 2.7.3, which is ~18 months out of date.
Unfortunately, there are some bugs in the older version of python (specifically, I'm using the
zipfile library, which fails silently on certain archive compression formats (tested against a different box with python 2.7.6)).
Basically, where can I get an updated python install? I don't see it in apt-cache, but I can't imagine the LTS apt repositories aren't being updated.
