Description of problem: The version of Django is old and does not include some desirable features such as multiple databases and improved messages framework
Fedora 13 already has the said version.
Unfortunately, Django for EL-5 cannot be upgraded because Django 1.2 is not backward compatible with 1.1. Rebuilding the F-13 or EL-6 RPM should work just fine, in my experience, though you might have to rebuild a couple of dependencies too (e.g. MySQL-python)
