Comment 5 Matthias Runge 2013-03-20 13:25:24 UTC
Django on EPEL5 is Django-1.1, it doesn't receive any updates any more since Django-1.3 was released, and that has been a loooong time.

Comment 6 Tomas Hoger 2013-03-20 15:23:27 UTC
Can you make sure it's properly obsoleted and removed form EPEL if it's no longer updated with security fixes?

Comment 7 Matthias Runge 2013-03-20 15:52:05 UTC
Never Django versions require never python versions, e.g. Django 1.5 (current version) requires python2.7 or python 3. 

Of course I can deprecate and retire from EPEL5, but what does this help?

Comment 8 Michel Alexandre Salim 2013-03-21 03:10:21 UTC
We don't want to ship packages that contain security vulnerabilities, I suppose, especially when alternatives exist (people who really want to use Django on EL5 could install Django 1.4.x on top of python26-virtualenv - though when Django 1.4.x also goes out of support they'd be in a pickle)

Comment 9 Tomas Hoger 2013-03-21 19:00:28 UTC
As explained by Michel, keeping known vulnerable and known unsupported package around is not ideal.  Its removal can also prevent similar future bugs.

Comment 10 Matthias Runge 2013-03-22 07:07:45 UTC
I absolutely agree, I've sent a mail about retiring Django-1.1 to epel-devel list:
