Comment 2 Tomas Orsava 2016-07-08 09:23:15 UTC
I mistakenly assigned this bug to myself—I wanted to assign to myself the bug for EPEL 7 not 5. I'm sorry for the confusion and I'm reverting it back now.

That being said, I have a working patch for Python 2.6 that should fix the issue so I'll attach it to this bug for you to use if you wish.

Comment 4 Fedora End Of Life 2017-04-06 10:11:41 UTC
Fedora EPEL 5 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2017-03-31. Fedora EPEL 5
is no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of Fedora
or Fedora EPEL, please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If
you are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the current
release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this bug.

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
