Such is life with longer release cycles. Note that this is also
something in the responsibility of upstreams. If they want their
software to be easily installable on not so bleeding edge operating
systems, they have to be careful in what to require too. So if needed
please raise awareness about the versions we ship.

I'm not sure if bleeding edge applies. python-3.5.1 is part of Ubuntu 16.04 LTS. Blender changes it's minimum python3 version infrequently it changed to python 3.4 in the middle of 2014 and python 3.5 in March 2016. The end result is users either install from or change distribution if they want stability. Is openSUSE:Leap a competitive LTS distribution?
My point is, it's time to move to python-3.5, which isn't bleeding edge to remain competitive. Less work for me though, I just have to worry about blender in Tumbleweed besides I sense that nothing I say is going to change anything.
