Comment 3 Mike A. Harris 2006-01-24 15:46:38 EST
Feature enhancement requests for Red Hat Enterprise Linux can be made
by contacting Red Hat support services via 1-888-RED-HAT1, or by filing
a web support ticket at http://www.redhat.com/support depending on
the type of Red Hat support contract obtained.

The general process for feature requests, is to have the author of
the patch/code submit their code to X.Org bugzilla at
http://bugs.freedesktop.org in the "xorg" component for review and
consideration.  Once the patch has been accepted and committed to X.Org
CVS, it will then get wider community regression and stability testing.

Later, when it is considered stable upstream, we can then re-review the
official support request for consideration in a future RHEL OS update
or new OS release.

Once a request is filed in X.Org bugzilla, if someone provides us with
the upstream bug URL, we will also track the issue in the upstream bugzilla.

Thanks in advance.

Comment 4 Mike A. Harris 2006-02-09 07:57:40 EST
Closing request due to lack of feedback/response to above queries.

Red Hat Enterprise Linux customers who wish to make an official feature
request for RHEL, can do so by logging into the Red Hat support website
at http://www.redhat.com/support or by contacting Red Hat support services
at 1-888-RED-HAT1 to make an official support request.

As mentioned in comment #3, most feature requests of this nature need
to be submitted directly to the upstream project and be accepted into
their codebase before we will consider inclusion in our products.

Setting status to "CANTFIX", as the prerequisites have not been met in
order for this feature to be considered for RHEL.
