ok. sent mail to EPEL signers group. :)
Hmmm. Is it wise to remove it? If I understood the discussion correctly
then users that already have the currently newest version of
python-imaging in EPEL4 installed will never get a update should there
ever be released one with a EVRN lower then (none):1.1.6-3.el4.
On the other hand: we cannot increase the epoch only in EPEL4 because
then the upgrade path to RHEL5 is broken (still/again).
Which of the two things is worse?
