For the record, I maintain Review Board RPMs for EPEL (Extra Packages
for Enterprise Linux). This is probably a much more reliable way to get
Review Board installed on CentOS 5.x.

Take a look at http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/EPEL for instructions on
adding the EPEL repository to your RHEL or CentOS installation.

*Note: Because of the old version of python and Django available in
RHEL/EPEL, only Review Board 1.5.x is available in EPEL. Review Board
1.6.x has dependency requirements that cannot be met.
