On a related point, the impending release of Django 1.4 means the end of
upstream support for Django 1.2.x, which is currently what is shipping
in EPEL 5 and 6. This puts EPEL in a bit of a pickle. 1.2.x->1.3.x or
1.4.x includes known backwards-incompatible changes. On the other hand,
upstream will not be providing any fixes (security or otherwise) once
1.4 is released.

As a related consideration, some other Django-derived projects such as
Review Board already have Django 1.3 as a minimum for their latest
releases. Review Board in particular is planning to move to Django 1.4
as its minimum for it's next major release.
