I've seen that you added a comment to the ticket - I still can't login.

I were going to proceed with the update, I'd opt for setting up a secondary
repository (osgeo4w-setup has an option -s to point to a different rep for
testing - not sure about apt).

We could then put the new python there and start migrating the rest - without
any disturbance to the main repository.  Once we're content with the new
repository, we just need to move the new packages to the original repository...
