I have submitted tetex-lineno for EPEL-4 only.

It was a regular submission. After it was accepted, the devel branch
was closed with a dead.package because this is allready in more recent
distributions. In the case of zenoss, this shouldn't be done, since it 
is possible that future versions also work on fedora. In my opinion, th
edevel branch should just not be built.

I fear that python2.4 compat packages won't be accepted in fedora, there
was a discussion about it some time ago on fedora-devel-list.

I personnally disagree on that kind of decisions of not trusting
packagers and not helping with backward compatibility package and
instead trying to block them, but that's how fedora currently is.

Looks like there is a compat2.4 python on livna, however.
