This report targets the FC3 or FC4 products, which have now been EOL'd.

Could you please check that it still applies to a current Fedora release, and
either update the target product or close it ?

Comment 3 JW 2007-01-19 19:32:39 EST
Patch already submitted!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If you haven't even bothered to look at the patch then why is FC4 EOL'd?

Perhaps RedHat is EOL'ing a little hastily?  Why drop an OS when you haven't
even bothered looking at submitted patches that improve that OS's utilities. 
And you haven't even bothered to look and see if that patch is applicable to the
latest version of that utility.
