Comment 1 Greg Swift 2015-02-06 03:47:14 UTC
Was able to successfully build this package on el6 under the following conditions:

1: Needed pytest 2.5+
2: pytest 2.5+ needed python-py 1.4.20+
3: Both pytest and python-py needed a newer python-sphinx than epel provides (in either python-sphinx or python-sphinx10

To accomplish this I used python-sphinx from copr-jruzicka-rdo-icehouse-epel-6.  Then i updated the sphinx based conditional in the pytest and python-py files to allow rhel > 5 (instead of >6) to use the main python-sphinx namespace.
