+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #846757 +++
Description of problem:
Current version of python-djblets for Fedora EPEL-6 contains embedded / own copy of python-feedparser (BUILD/Djblets-0.6.22/djblets/feedview/feedparser.py) code, which is vulnerable to numerous security flaws (CVE-2009-5065, CVE-2011-1156, CVE-2011-1157, and CVE-2011-1158 to mention some of them).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
See https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=684877#c2 and https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=684877#c3 for further details.

Since there is a system version of python-feedparser package available in Fedora EPEL-6 (python-feedparser-5.0.1-1.el6), which is not vulnerable to these issues any more (bug #684877), if possible, python-djblets should be instructed to use system version of the python-feedparser package instead of the embedded feedparser.py code (since if another security issue is found in the embedded code, python-djblets would need to be updated too).
python-djblets-0.6.22-2.el6 has been submitted as an update for Fedora EPEL 6.
