Comment 10 RHEL Product and Program Management 2010-08-09 15:47:07 EDT
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for
inclusion in the current release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
Because the affected component is not scheduled to be updated in the
current release, Red Hat is unfortunately unable to address this
request at this time. Red Hat invites you to ask your support
representative to propose this request, if appropriate and relevant,
in the next release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.

This component is not on the approved components list for RHEL 5.7 and is not planned for update.  Closing as DEFERRED and moving to the 5.8 trackers for review for that release.
