Continuous delivery of SecureCRT session file

I want to be able to continuously compile our CSV of devices into a SecureCRT session file format that users can check out of git. Every time someone updates our CSV of devices, I would like a new SecureCRT session file generated. Our CI/CD process can take care of that, assuming I can offer automation for the SecureCRT side. These users will be primarily Windows 10 users. The host I want to do this continuous delivery (read: conversion) on is a Linux box with no GUI.

There is lots of discussion on the forums and web about the VBS and Python scripts reading in CSVs but they depend on an interactive client experience to import the sessions given a data file(CSV).

Some questions:

a) Should I be installing the Linux client package on the Linux host doing the continuous conversion in order to have access to the libraries needed? Are they available through pip? How do I include them in a Python script on that host?

b) What methods am I using to generate that session file, and what format is it producing (ini?)

thanks!
