EL-3 as the host or target system? As the host sys it might be that some
requirements are too old (pyOpenSSL maybe?) or n/a.

Some documentation is in the packages, a few more pages are in the
Wiki (I just noticed I don't know them):

EL-4: http://mschwendt.fedorapeople.org/plague/plague-
EL-5: http://mschwendt.fedorapeople.org/plague/plague-
are basically what the EPEL build machines run.

The various noarch packages are:
  plague-utils : for certhelper, user-manager
  plague : the server

Hints? Start the builder and server services as early as possible to let
them write the default config files once. When they fail to start during
configuration attempts, they either complain on console or in the logs
(/var/log/plague*). Starting the server programs manually may be helpful
(e.g. /usr/bin/plague-builder -c /etc/plague/builder/plague-builder.cfg
instead of "service plague-builder start") till the config files and
target files are set up. The www files are only in the source tarball.
