Comment (by muellea):

 i now have two fresh packages python and python-core which, i think, need
 further testing. Python is 32bit and 2.7.14.

 Here is a short description of what i did:

 - install python27-msi-file (current user!)
 - create a folder named python-core
 - unzip python-skeleton.zip in python-core
 - copy python27 folder to python-core/apps
 - uninstall python27 (if you like)
 - copy python.exe, python27.dll, pythonw.exe and w9xpopen.exe to bin
 - tar cvjf apps bin etc to python-core-version.tar.gz like here:

 My Tests: start python shell, import gdal, start idle, start qgis-ltr,
