Thank you for maintaining the security-hardened fork of Django 1.6. It would really facilitate upgrading to the latest release if you built linux wheels. See https://pythonwheels.com/ for more about python wheels.
The reason we haven't yet is that we've been making use of the upstream Django packaging, in order to stay as similar to the upstream code as possible. Adding proper support for wheels will require changes to the tree. We might go that route, but for now have held off diverging too much where packaging is concerned.
