Thank you for your prompt replies!  Karl, the iuscommunity repo is exactly what I needed.  Also, it has some other packages that I've had to install directly so this is even better!  thanks guys, see you next meeting.

Hi All,

The subversion server at my office is on a CentOS 6 server, and a software 
developer wrote a hook in python for it.  The hook requires python 2.7,
but CentOS 6 only has 2.6.6 (python-2.6.6-36.el6 to be exact).

I grabbed python-2.7.2-5.2.fc16.src.rpm from Fedora 16 and am trying to
roll my own via instructions I found on the CentOS wiki.  All is good
except that it requires db4.8, and that's not out for RHEL6 either.

>From where I stand, it looks like my options are: 1) wait this out until
either Python or a dependency are pushed up, but when is that? 2) rebuild
this package with the deps, but I'm not quite sure how to roll a -devel
package 3) roll my own package from scratch 4) install python 2.7 in an
alternate location and point to it for this script

Since this is a production server, I'd rather no do any hacks on this.
Does anybody know how the release schedule works, or have any other

Thanks in advance, -- Eric Martin

Look at Software Collections. Not sure if they have python2.7 yet though.

Some SRPMS of python 2.7
