An experimental patch to remove extra dependency to python-simplejson
Description of problem:
python-rhsm depends on python-simplejson but python in RHEL 6 provides
it (as 'json' module) so this dependency is not needed basically, I think.
FYI. json (simplejson) was added in python itself since 2.6 and the version
of pyhon in RHEL 6 is 2.6.x:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
confirmed with python-rhsm-0.96.15-1 in RHEL 6.2.
I'll upload an experimental patch to fix it. I didn't test the patch
but it should work on both RHEL 5 and 6, I guess.
