Hi Stephen,

That's great news, I had been wondering if Fedora/RHEL users would be 
seeing RB2.5 soon.

On Fedora, it looks like the Django packages have moved ahead to 1.8, but 
RB still needs 1.6.  Hence ReviewBoard has disappeared from Fedora from F22 
onwards :(

Nice to see that the situation on RHEL+EPEL is better.  For users on that 
platform, what can we expect when installing the upgrade?  If I already 
have a 2.0.18 installation and a site populated with users/reviews/comments 
etc. will this migrate without effort up to RB 2.5.2 or is anything else 
required, e.g. database backup/restore?
