Hmm, we had to update as flask_babel isn’t working with modern versions of

Can flask_babelex be built as a private package and installed in the
pgAdmin web/ directory? That’s what Devrim does with a bunch of the dips
for the RPMs.

Another option which may be a lot easier in the long run would be to not
use the packaged python reps at all, and create a single dependency package
that is basically a Python virtual envy used just by pgAdmin. I know it’s
not ideal from a packaging purists perspective, but my view is that it’s
better the users have the tools they want than the packaging follows the
letter of the rule book.
