need for python-cx-oracle compatible with oracle-instantclient19.3-basic


when trying to install python-cx_oracle  and oracle-instantclient19.3-basic from, yum tries to install the latest version of each, namely:

- oracle-instantclient19.3-basic.x86_64 version

- python-cx_Oracle.x86_64 version 7.2.3-1.el7

I see them under the following section of the repository

• OracleLinux/OL7/oracle/instantclient/x86_64

• OracleLinux/OL7/developer/x86_64

But python-cx_Oracle.x86_64 version 7.2.3-1.el7 is incompatible with instantclient19.3-basic.x86_64 version .
Below is the error message I get:

How can I go about asking for a new release of python-cx_Oracle.x86_64 compatible with instantclient19.3-basic.x86_64 version ?

Many thanks for your help,
