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 unable to address this
request at this time.
Red Hat invites you to ask your support representative to
propose this request, if appropriate, in the next release of
Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
Given the age of this and how it's a cosmetic problem I'm going to close this now, as we are very late in RHEL-5. At least the early versions of RHEL-6 yum/yum-utils could be rebuilt on RHEL-5, so if any customer really needs this then that is a viable path.
