Comment 1 Suzanne Yeghiayan 2011-01-05 19:45:58 UTC
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.  This request has been 
proposed for the next release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
If you would like it considered as an exception in the 
current release, please ask your support representative.
