If version 2.6.6 is out, why doesnt RedHat suport it?
Comment 2 Ondrej Vasik 2013-05-09 14:59:46 EDT
Because RHEL-5 is now in production phase 2 - see https://access.redhat.com/support/policy/updates/errata/ . Red Hat Enterprise Linux keeps old packages and backports just the fixes/features important for customers - as rebases may break the setup of the customers. Please, don't expect dnsmasq 2.66 in RHEL-5.

In addition - as I said - we are now in production phase 2. Thus, updates are driven by customer requests. Bugzilla is bug tracking tool, but not a tool for support/customer requests. 

If this issue is critical or in any way time sensitive, please raise a ticket through your regular Red Hat support channels to make certain  it receives the proper attention and prioritization to assure a timely resolution.

This Bugzilla has been reviewed by Red Hat and is not planned on being
addressed in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5, and therefore will be closed.
If this bug is critical to production systems, please contact your Red
Hat support representative and provide sufficient business
