I don't have steps, but I have packages.

RPMs are on S3:

PyLucene is the only package required by Review Board. But to build
PyLucene from source (e.g., rpmbuild --rebuild) you need JCC, and to
build JCC you need to patch python-setuptools. The setuptools patch
comes from their bug tacker [1], modified to patch against the EL6
version. I based the spec files on ones created by Felix Schwarz [2].
The SRPMs build with rpmbuild, though I haven't tried from in mock.
Tested on Scientific Linux 6 with Review Board 1.5.5 from EPEL. If you
are going to build these packages I recommend building on a throw-away
dev machine (or in a chroot), and only installing the PyLucene package
in production, that way you don't have a weird patched setuptools in
