I created the epypel (Extra Extra Python Packages for Enterprise
Linux) yum repo for exactly this reason:

There are a bunch of additional Python 2 and Python 3 packages there
and if you want any added, please put in a request here:

The repo does not upgrade any packages in base or EPEL, so should be
safe to use on most CentOS 7 systems.
