Description Erik M Jacobs 2012-12-22 20:53:48 EST
Description of problem:
The latest iteration of mock from EPEL5 (1.0.36-1.el5) seems to require a newer python.  On run, it blows up immediately with a syntax error.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
1.0.36-1.el5

How reproducible:
100%

Steps to Reproduce:
1. run mock (any options)
  
Actual results:
[thoraxe@rpmbuild ~]$ mock
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/sbin/mock", line 66, in ?
    import mockbuild.backend
  File "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/mockbuild/backend.py", line 237
    finally:
          ^
SyntaxError: invalid syntax

Expected results:
mock should run

It's been about a month with no update/needinfo/etc.  Anything going on here?
