Could you please report this problem via Red Hat support channels. 
Comment 2 Andrew Gormanly 2006-05-16 05:33:50 EDT
As we are a university, our Academic licences do not provide support
entitlements to RHN!

Are you saying that it's a RH policy decision to deliberately not provide
gsl-devel in RHEL 3, and therefore not a bug?

Comment 9 RHEL Product and Program Management 2007-05-09 00:21:14 EDT
Product Management has reviewed and declined this request.  You may appeal this
decision by reopening this request.

Colin -

It seems obvious to me that PM doesn't have a better answer.  The client
has worked around the original issue, so let's just close this case out. 
Thanks for the help.
