Default python-numeric in EPEL5 newer then in RHEL5

Hello.

Just noticed that python-numeric-24.2 got pushed to EPEL5.
python-numeric (-23.7) is already present in RHEL5 so I believe the epel
version should (somehow) be un-pushed.

I added a note about this to:

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=664399

Hopefully the maintainer will dead.package it and get it blocked.
If they don't, I can do so in a while...

I think it's better done ASAP since any subscriber of RHEL that pulls
this update will need to take manual steps to revert the process.
Also, one the dead.package is in place, we probably should send out
something on epel-announce describing the steps how to get back to a
supported configuration.

I have retired the EL5 branch following the procedure here,
by marking it as dead.package and retiring the branch:

http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/PackageMaintainers/PackageEndOfLife

Here is the rel-eng ticket:

https://fedorahosted.org/rel-eng/ticket/4373

Hopefully this will be pushed through soon. Sorry for the
confusion, I got broken dep messages for missing python-numeric
in RHEL/EPEL 6, and I assumed that it was also missing in
RHEL/EPEL 5. I should have checked a bit more.

Ideally bodhi would detect such a situation and prevent things
being pushed. Also it's not super easy to find whether a
package is or is not in RHEL. There's no equivalent of
PackageDB, you have to nose around the SRPM directories,
which seems somewhat suboptimal.
