Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having a security

Python is an interpreted, interactive, object-oriented programming
language, which includes modules, classes, exceptions, very high level
dynamic data types and dynamic typing. Python supports interfaces to
many system calls and libraries, as well as to various windowing
systems.

This package provides the 'python3' executable: the reference
interpreter for the Python language, version 3. The majority of its
standard library is provided in the python3-libs package, which should
be installed automatically along with python3. The remaining parts of
the Python standard library are broken out into the python3-tkinter
and python3-test packages.

Security Fix(es) :

* python: Information Disclosure due to urlsplit improper NFKC
normalization (CVE-2019-9636)
