Hi all:

Regarding the python-imaging package...
What is the matter with including the 1.1.6 version in EPEL/el5?  does 
it break anything?
Both Plone and python-docutils (deps in EPEL) use the Image library from 
PIL and this library does not have any
backward compatibility issues.  additionally, RHEL5-client has no 
package that depends on
python-imaging.  So I say KISS, and ship 1.1.6 with the EPEL/el5.  I 
know it goes against the EPEL policies,
but I think its much better that messing with nvr.
