Comment 4 Jan Lieskovsky 2013-04-09 05:02:57 EDT

  what about mod_security update for Fedora EPEL-5 yet? Breno Silva of ModSecurity upstream is asking me:
[1] http://www.openwall.com/lists/oss-security/2013/04/08/11

if we would like to have backported patch version. For now I will reply positively (since assuming this is what is preventing us from scheduling Fedora EPEL-5 mod_security update yet). Will Cc-you on that post.

Thanks && Regards, Jan.

P.S.: While the Version field in this bug speaks about 'el6', please don't get confused with that one (we need also mod_security update) for Fedora EPEL-5.
