Comment 2 Tim Flink 2013-05-28 23:50:06 EDT
python-pip 1.3 is already stable in el6.

python-pip upstream has a minimum python version requirement of 2.6, so the fix for el5 is a bit tougher but I'll take a look to see what's reasonable there.
Comment 3 Vincent Danen 2013-05-29 00:19:59 EDT
Changing the version to reflect that this only affects epel5.
