Ok, for the record. The reason why there is no newer RHEL3 package is 
inside of the RHEL3 buildlogs at:


In this case something like this:

	----- Build log -----
	error: Failed build dependencies:
	        python >= 2.3 is needed by revelation-0.4.7-1.el3.rf
	        gnome-keyring-devel is needed by revelation-0.4.7-1.el3.rf
	        pygtk2-devel >= 2.4 is needed by revelation-0.4.7-1.el3.rf

Your problems with RHEL4 however deserve to be posted to the revelation 
mailinglist. Revelation's developer (Erik Grinaker) is very open to 
bug-reports and feedback. It would be a missed opportunity to not forward 
it there.

Oh sure. I guess I misinterpreted the intention.
