I'm sorry about the lack of attention from me on this package; I'm
deeply involved in GCC upstream right now, and don't have time to work
on it. Sorry.
I also don't use it; for recent python on RHEL 5 I now prefer the RH
Software Collections .
I've orphaned the EPEL5 branch within the pkgdb.
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.
