OK, so we have a problem here (and one I'm really embarassed not to have
noticed; I usually just bump and rebuild RBTools on EPEL 7 assuming it will
continue to work there the same way that it does on EPEL 6.

Well, it turns out that EPEL 6 has a newer version of python-six than RHEL
7 does, and RBTools is completely broken on the latter platform because of
it. (RHEL/CentOS 7.1 only ships with python-six 1.3.0 and the
six.move.urllib.parse support was added in python-six 1.4.0)

The good news is that RHEL/CentOS 7.2 should include python-six 1.9.0[1].
The bad news is that's a ways out, so this will be broken in the meantime.

I have two choices:
1) Revert RBTools back to a version prior to this requirement. That looks
like 0.6.3, which is almost certainly not a good idea.
2) Ship RBTools broken in the standard repository and direct people to pull
an unofficial python-six package from a COPR repository.

I'm going to go with 2) for now, updating the version of RBTools in EPEL to
have an explicit requirement on python-six >= 1.4 so that it won't be
installable without using my COPR repository until RHEL 7.2 is released.

Given that RBTools has been broken like this for months, I suspect this
won't actually affect a great many people, but I'd still like to ask that
the Review Board devs add a note in the online documentation pointing
people to drop
into /etc/yum.repos.d until RHEL 7.2 is released. This repository will
contain only a rebased python-six package.

It'll be available in a couple hours (right now, there's an unplanned
outage going on causing COPR builds to fail).
