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.
