  Was not this solved before?
  According to the cvs the last version available is

%changelog
* Mon Jul 23 2007 Joel Andres Granados <jgranado at redhat dot com> - 0:1.1.4-1 - Build python-imaging for EPEL4 with the version from FC3. EPEL4 are packages
- that can be installed in RHEL4**.

IIRC we had downgraded to cope with the inclusion of it in EL5. This was done before the official launch of EPEL so I have no clue what has gone wrong.

Depends on who "we" is. You cannot downgrade a package without asking the
epel-signers to delete a newer package in the repo. The repo shows that an
older package was pushed several months after the higher version:

[ ] python-imaging-1.1.4-1.src.rpm 25-Jul-2007 11:03 418K [ ] python-imaging-1.1.6-3.el4.sr..> 02-Mar-2007 18:20 436K

This is extremely strange.
1. This didn't come up before :) I've been checking the EPEL fairly regularly
to see if python-imaging had any problems and it had never come up. Since the 1.1.4 appeared after 25-Jul, it should have screamed immediately (assuming that the 1.1.6 version was there)

2. I started co maintaining the EPEL package with jamatos around jul-2007, so the 1.1.6 version must have been there already (IMHO). Can we actually
know who pushed it?  Maybe it was automatically brought in :).

3. I checked my email logs and verified that the issue was discussed around Jul-2007
I cannot find earlier mails about the package ( I subscribed around Jul-2007, so
apologies if I'm wrong)

Don't know what to make of it. So I assume from "You cannot downgrade a package without asking the epel-signers to delete a newer package", that the solution is to delete the newer package. right?
