I noticed that EL5 and EL7 both have much newer versions of zabbix 2.2
than EL6. Is there a reason for this? I'm still trying to wrap my
head around the package update process in hopes to help provided

16:43:25 <dgilmore> stahnma: not sure we can allow depending of software
Just from a technical POV (not taken into account if we allow that in
Fedora/EPEL/whereever) -- a common use case now is that if some package
depends on some software collection, this package either is build in the
same or in a depended software collection.
However, there are and will be cases where somebody would like to create
a non-SCL RPM depended on a software collection, which is something not
solved properly yet and the solution might be quite different from
collection to collection.
16:47:43 <Evolution> smooge: where's the upstream for scls?
16:47:51 <Evolution> it's damned sure not softwarecollections.org
16:47:52 <smooge> softwarecollections.org I believe
16:48:07 <Evolution> it *should* be that, but it's not.
For the tooling (scl-utils), the upstream is at
For the collections packages (packages with scl macros defined) the
upstream indeed is supposed to be at softwarecollections.org but I must
admit we are not there yet (it's quite fresh project) -- there are still
pieces missing like RPM sources in git, bug tracking or active
development ahead of already released RHSCL.
But there is definitely not any other upstream url.
Just trying to see what's the status of the python26 package in EPEL5.
It doesn't appear to have been updated for a while:
* Wed Nov 07 2012 Jeffrey Ness <jeffrey.ness(a)rackspace.com> - 2.6.8-2
- Patch 121 forces sys.platform to linux2
related to issue http://bugs.python.org/issue12326
python 2.6.9 was released but not updated -
Upstream has declared it dead, although it is in RHEL6 and so presumably
receives attention from RedHat there.
There are several open CVE bugs against it. Time to retire or try to
sync to the RHEL6 package?
PS - I started looking into this to see if it is worth trying to create
a python26-django14 package for EL5 to support cobbler-web.
