Umh, my fault. I'm planning to upgrade django for epel6 to version 1.3.x 
since two weeks now; sadly, real life kept me really busy.

There have been some requests to upgrade to version 1.4 (to skip 1.3.x). 
I'm aware of at least one application, which would break, if we upgrade 
to django-1,4: reviewboard.
So, I'd do an update to django-1.3.1 in the next few days. An additional 
reason to upgrade is, that django developers only support the two latest 
versions, so 1.2.7 is not actively maintained any more.
