3. Business Case
The Web 2.0 has reached almost every IT company. The success of Web 2.0 is based on the availability
of run-time components and applications which make use of them. To continue on this success of Web
2.0, new components are required to get included and available components need to be updated in the
enterprise releases of Linux distributions. This will enable customers to make their experiences on
deploying and testing their Web 2.0 applications.

See for documentation of manual installation that the user still needs to do:

No code to submit for this feature,
Red Hat to include open source package .
Comment 2 Subhendu Ghosh 2009-03-10 22:24:49 EDT
RHEL PM has denied the request to add Web 2.0
features to RHEL 5. Any considerations for
inclusion should be targeted for the next
major release

decision by reopening this request.
