This is an automatically-filed bug.
fail2ban-0.8.4-24.fc13 contains one or more .pyc files, but has not been rebuilt since Python 2.7 was built for Fedora, and thus the .pyc files presumably are for Python 2.6. Python 2.7 changed the bytecode format, so usage of those files will typically fail (see e.g. bug 621726).
The package needs to be rebuilt against python 2.7 in both F14 and devel.
Information on the new "dist-git" system can be seen here:
Information on common difficulties with Python 2.7 rebuilds can be seen here:
Once it's been successfully rebuilt for F14, an update needs to be filed to get the rebuild into F14:
Please add this bug to the update, to make it easy to track what's been done, and what's left to do.
I'm sorry that this component was not handled by the mass rebuild. (This may be due to bug 623233)
