Hi,

osgeo4w installer shows

python, 2.7.2-4

but

python-core, 2.7.4-2

Who is it possible (2.7.2 X 2.7.4)?

python is just a meta package, that depends on the actual python-* packages. So the version number doesn't really matter - but now there's an also empty package with 2.7.4-2.

btw, one of the dependencies of python package is surprisingly python-tcltk. Why so? It seems to me that it's not a "core" dependency, right?

Because it's a transitional package. The python package used to contain everything and was split into several packages. Package currently depending on the python package should be updated to depend on the actually needed python-* packages.
