Hello,

where can i read about the reason of changes in structure of
devel:languages:python and the new devel:languages:python:backports?

I am guessing
https://lists.opensuse.org/opensuse-factory/2018-04/msg00698.html
contains most of the reasoning, but at the same time some Leap users
wish to use the latest version of the python stack, this new backports
repo allows them to do that with the added guarantee that while these
packages have not been tested by the openSUSE project for use in leap
they do atleast meet our quality standards.

The description of the backports repo sums up how it works pretty well
so I will paste that below:

This project is building the Tumbleweed versions of python modules for
older distributions. Submission should happen to the respective devel
project for the Tumbleweed package instead.

The packages in here are automatically polled from OBS openSUSE:Factory
repository and removed/added as they live there.
