It's against policies. Currently python-django has version 1.6.
1.8 is major release.
Django 1.8 is an Long-Term Support version (supported until April,
2018) while 1.6 support ended in April, 2015 (so one year without
security updates ...).
For EPEL, it would be smarter to stick to LTS releases, rather than
sticking to unmaintained releases.
Moreover, updates policies are guidelines to prevent mistakes not
