yum --enablerepo=centosplus upgrade python

but that just told me everything was ok with the current installation, not
what I'm after. So I think I should try c5-testing, but all I get is this:

[c5-testing]
name=CentOS-5 Testing
baseurl=http://dev.centos.org/centos/$releasever/testing/$basearch/
enabled=0
gpgcheck=1
gpgkey=http://dev.centos.org/centos/RPM-GPG-KEY-CentOS-testing

How do I incorporate this and where? Next I'll try building an rpm if I
must.
TIA,
Susan
