nice, that somebody from the Red Hat fraction has been woken up, is Jim

How do you expect that we perform the dropping? We can't remove branches
that already exist - spoken for CVS. And the pexpect package *has* to
remain in EPEL for users that did not upgrade to RHEL 5.2 (5.0.x, 5.1.x);
otherwise e.g. duplicity will get immediately unusable on such systems.
Of course I will avoid touching the pexpect that way, that maybe pexpect
from RHEL 5.2+/4.7+ gets obsoleted or older.
So, pexpect package MUST NOT removed ever from EPEL 4 and 5 as of legacy
support mentioned above - period!
