Yes, ReviewBoard currently cannot work with Django 1.4. This is a known
issue and last I heard probably won't be fixed until ReviewBoard 1.7.0
(not yet in beta release).

However, now that your 1.3.1 packages are in updates-testing, I have
been able to package up ReviewBoard 1.6.5 which requires Django 1.3, so
thanks for that. :) There are a lot of improvements in the 1.6.x series
that I think people will like.,python-djblets-0.6.16-1.el6,RBTools-0.4.1-1.el6,ReviewBoard-1.6.5-2.el6
