Comment 4 RHEL Product and Program Management 2010-08-09 15:47:41 EDT
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for
inclusion in the current release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
Because the affected component is not scheduled to be updated in the
current release, Red Hat is unfortunately unable to address this
request at this time. Red Hat invites you to ask your support
representative to propose this request, if appropriate and relevant,
in the next release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
Comment 5 Jiri Popelka 2013-03-11 13:00:18 EDT
RHEL-5.10 (the next RHEL-5 minor release) is going to be the first production phase 2 [1] release of RHEL-5.
Since phase 2 we'll be addressing only security and critical issues.
I'm closing this ticket as WONTFIX because this problem is neither security nor critical.
