Description of problem:
http://www.apacheweek.com/features/security-20 lists several security
vulnerabilities with the version available from Red Hat/RHN which is seven
releases out-of-date. Need to make a package with httpd 2.0.47!
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Wrong product, version, component, but also NOTABUG, and not a genuine feature
request. If you use RHN, please use the feedback tool for these sort of requests:
*** Bug 101843 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
*** Bug 101842 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
That's funny. When I contacted RHN feedback, customer service and technical
support, they all told me to open a feature request through Bugzilla. This
volleying suggests to me that RedHat's has no commitment to keeping pace with
version currency and addressing security vulnerabilities within its
distributions. Please advise.

If you want to get the newer version of it, you can make request in this way:
For technical requests, you can make a "Request for Enhancement" (RFE) at
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla. The product is "Red Hat Network" and
the various components are prefaced by "RHN/". Please put "[RFE]" at the
beginning of the summary line of your request.
If you would like to provide non-technical feedback to Red Hat Network, please
go to https://rhn.redhat.com/help/contact.pxt and follow the directions
For more informations and instructions about rhn:
Thanks for writing to rhn support. If you have any other concerns regarding
rhn, please feel free to write back. Best regards, Red Hat Network Team
Whoops, I'm an idiot. It is the correct method, but the product / version /
component was wrong - we just push the bits, we don't make the packages. I'l put
it in the right place and apply correction to the feedback folks, as well as
some self correction. Many apologies for the runaround.
The individual security fixes needed each already have their own tracking bugs,
see 98852, 98853, 98855, and also see
http://www.redhat.com/advice/speaks_backport.html on why we backport fixes.
