buidrpm --withpython embeds 2.7.10. Should it be bumped?

Hi,

when building for older platforms (centos5, centos6) via our Makefile, 
we embed a custom version of python 2.7 in the rpm ("buildrpm 
--withpython").
At the moment, this version is "2.7.10" (which is from 2015):

   $ grep -rin "2\.7\.10"
   contrib/Makefile.python:1:PYTHONVER=2.7.10
   contrib/buildrpm:23:        PYTHONVER=2.7.10

Does anyone know if we absolutely need that version?

If this is simply an overlook, I would bump it to python 2.7.14 (latest 
version as of today), and take some time to test the build on centos5 
and centos6, then submit a small patch.

Any thoughts?
