I don't have time to maintain the EPEL-5 python26. I recommend that people wanting python releases beyond 2.3 on EL5 use the Software Collections:
which currently includes Python 2.7 and Python 3.3

this should have read "2.4"
Thanks, closing this as WONTFIX then, since the branch is already orphaned.
