comment RewriteRule Works With “Match Everything” Pattern But Not Directory Pattern
It is very strange since you rewritecond matces with that excact same regex so maybe there are some junk chars or something. It would be interresting to see the rewritelog...

comment RewriteRule Works With “Match Everything” Pattern But Not Directory Pattern
the ^(/assets/img/newsletter/)(.+) regex does match the Request URI /assets/img/newsletter/Jan12_Newsletter.html. what does the rewrite log says? I usually put it on RewriteLogLevel 5.

comment When will Red Hat fully support & ship with python 2.7
Yes I agree there is some learning curve, but having been around for a while is not only a bad thing for an OS either, considering how many bug fixes are already merged in there, and the amount of documented support issues on the Internet and in the Red Hat Customer portal. Besides, RHEL have really long life cycles. That said, I'd consider RHEL 7 too, you have to learn systemd at some point.

you can build these packages from src rpm:s (and dependencies) and install them alongside with your other versions, however since RHEL 5 first released 7yrs ago, you should check if you could instead aquire a RHEL6 box in stead (or even RHEL7).

comment Weird syslog order
This happened on a box of mine running fedora, it turned out that rsyslog had crashed, but journald did keep logs which it did forward to rsyslog once it started, resulting in old messages got mixed with new. This was in fedora 20 though.
