Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1014377
retire python-dateutil in EPEL5 as it is included in RHEL 5.10

According to RHEA-2013:1346 and bug 920883 python-dateutil is now also in RHEL 5 so it should be retired in EPEL 5 (possibly with a check that the upgrade path is working).
Looking at this, I can't see bug 920883 so if I need to someone had better summarise it here.
RHEL5 (and CentOS) now ship python-dateutil.noarch 1.2-3.el5. The package must be removed from EPEL (upgrade path is intact, no need for any additional action).
Retired in git, unclear from https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/How_to_remove_a_package_at_end_of_life if koji will block or not, will check tomorrow.
Package has gone from EPEL.
