[HTCondor-users] HTCondor 8.8.4 and boost169-python2

I'm running a RHEL7 derivative, and until last week using the HTCondor
stable repository.  However with the release of 8.8.4 it started
giving errors about not being able to update due to missing
dependencies.  I see in the changelog this minor blurb:

"The Python bindings are now available for Python 3 on Debian, Ubuntu,
and Enterprise Linux 7. To use these bindings on Enterprise Linux 7
systems, the EPEL repositories are required to provide Python 3.6 and
Boost 1.69. (Ticket #6327)"

However what I find is that the RPMs require that boost169-python2 be
installed, which also is part of EPEL and not configured by default on
my machines.  Since the package in question is
python2-condor-8.8.4-1.el7.x86_64 should it be built against either a
different (included) version of boost, or not at all?  Or is boost169
now a requirement for Python 2 as well, which is undocumented and
