This enhancement request was evaluated by the full Red Hat Enterprise Linux team for inclusion in a Red Hat Enterprise Linux minor release. As a result of this evaluation, Red Hat has tentatively approved inclusion of this feature in the next Red Hat Enterprise Linux Update minor release. While it is a goal to include this enhancement in the next minor release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux, the enhancement is not yet committed for inclusion in the next minor release pending the next phase of actual code integration and successful Red Hat and partner testing.

(In reply to comment #3) > ------- Comment From firstname.lastname@example.org 2010-10-04 10:42 EDT------- > Code Upstream Status: No Code Required What did you mentioned with this status? There is libvpd-2.1.1 in RHEL6 and latest upstream is libvpd-2.1.2. The 2.1.2 version seems to be a bit corrupted (lib numbering, libtool version - currently investigated). Which version did you mentioned as a right one?
