Intent to retire: mod_python

mod_python upstream has been inactive for five years, since Graham 
Dumpleton went to work on mod_wsgi.  IMO it is long past time to retire 
mod_python in Fedora.  But the following packages still depend on it:

Source      : glump-0.9.11-10.fc17.src.rpm
Source      : koji-1.6.0-3.fc17.src.rpm
Source      : viewvc-1.1.13-1.fc17.src.rpm
Source      : yawn-0-0.3.20120227svn561.fc18.src.rpm

I haven't checked whether these are simply to convert over to WSGI or 
not.  Does anybody want to maintain mod_python?  If not, I'm going to 
retire it.

Regards, Joe
