Patchwork broken after server update

I've upgraded from Fedora 17 which was reaching EOL to
Fedora 19.  Since then patchwork is no longer working.

The first issue is that patchwork was no longer accepting new patches via
the apps/patchwork/bin/ script.  When I was trying to invoke
it manually, it only printed "no project found".  I was able to figure
out that this was caused by changes to the database scheme which are taken
care of by the two SQL scripts:


The catch - these first script don't run with MySQL - or rather MariaDB that
Fedora has switched to.  MariaDB doesn't like the quotes around the table
and column names.  Patch below.

With the database scheme fixed patchwork now appears to properly filter
patch from email into its database.

The web interface is a bit harder.  First, Fedora has retired mod_python
which I previously was using, so short of resurrecting that module from
the dead I decided to switch to the wsgi interface instead.

But still no success with the webapp.  All I get for an access to is a "Server Error (500)" Nothing useful in
apache log files, even with loglevel cranked up to infinity other than the
already known fact that the script resulted in a server error 500.

Django version is 1.5.1, Python 2.7.3, Apache 2.4.4, patchwork is latest
from git, 4e7b62c5 [notifications: add project name to patch update

Any ideas?
