Packager on RHEL5/CentOS5?

Hi everyone,

As you may know I am working on updating our package database (pkgdb) to a new
version named pkgdb2. In this process, pkgdb-cli has got re-writen and now ships
a python module that can be used as an interface to query the pkgdb2
The thing is that fedpkg relies on pkgdb-cli to retire packages and there is a
milestone set for F22 to make python3 the default python interpreter [1].
The module mentionned above should work fine on EL5 as well as under
python3, however that's not the case for pkgdb-cli.

My question is thus, is there anyone here that is using RHEL5/CentOS5 to do
packaging for Fedora/EPEL?
If so, and if you rely on fedpkg/pkgdb-cli for it, please say so :)
(here or on [2]).

Otherwise, I am considering making the first release of pkgdb-cli for pkgdb2 on
el6+ only.

Thanks for your attention, you can go back to work now :)
