[Ralf, hope you don't mine me putting you in the nosy list.]
In docs/installation.txt, section 'Configure a Web Interface' mod_python is listed 
as one of the web interface options. After taking a while to get it to build and 
install properly with virtualenv and python 3.6, I encountered this page when 
getting ready to create an apache mod_python.load file:

which has a link to this page:

The first 2 lines in the body of the second link's page are:

Thursday, June 17, 2010
The mod_python project is now officially dead.

The first link says that mod_python has "multiple security, performance and 
stability issues". The module mod_wsgi is the recommended alternative.

Since mod_python was declared dead in June 2010, and has problems with security, 
performance and stability, should it be listed as an alternative web interfaces in 
roundup's doc/installation.txt? Removing it may someone else the effort of building 
and installing it.
