We've had this conversation at least once before, but I figured I would bring it up
You can see in Mike's original post that there a number of reasons we should bump to
the 2.7 series in EPEL, but primarily it's because critical bug fixes aren't
ending up in the 2.6 series any longer. I don't want to completely rehash the
conversation in the old thread, but I think that it's important for EPEL to be
providing updates on a maintained branch so I'd like to propose that both EPEL 5 &
EPEL 6 packages get bumped to 2.7. This plan will largely avoid the issues that come with
the potentially tricky upgrade path for users between 2.x and 3.x.
