Description

In Oracle Linux 8.x, I see that the yum package manager is using python (and more specifically a wrapper to detect python2 or 3) and it's failing on my host.
Obviously, this comes from python{2 or 3} is not installed by default.

After a quick "dnf module install python36", my directives are running nicely.

Do you think it could be worth mentioning it somewhere in the doc, or is Oracle Linux considered too a-side (not strictly supported) to bother?

This is a general information (it's the same for all distributions) that could go in the technique description, something like: "this technique needs a python environment".
