How many Django-based packages are we talking about? Should we be
considering putting things together in a side tag before landing in

Also, I know at least Review Board is incompatible with 1.5 at this
time. They're planning to have a 1.5-compatible release sometime in the
next month or so.

Looking at the release notes[1], there is a sizeable number of
backwards-incompatible changes present in this new version. I think
it's going to bite us if we force it straight into Rawhide at this
point. Given the way that Django tends to operate
(backwards-incompatible releases about every six months with only the
current and previous release supported for bugfixes and security), I'm
wondering if we shouldn't just drop the 'python-django' package
entirely and go with 'python-django14', 'python-django15', etc. from
here until eternity, retiring unsupported versions only between
upstream releases. This is a policy that would probably also work
acceptably for EPEL (CCed).

Also, Django 1.5's release notes[2] indicate that it now has support
for Python 3.2 and later. I'd strongly recommend that we should be
dual-building python3-django15 as well here.
