as soon as you are able to.
Please go to the following url:
then log in and leave karma (feedback).
I'm actually running this on RHEL 6 but the fix works there and so I'm assuming it works on the other builds as well.
On a bit of a tangent, what would it take to get these added to EPEL 5 and 6. I wouldn't mind helping out by being a co-maintainer for those.
I don't maintain EPEL branches (of any package), you more than welcome as EPEL maintainer and Fedora co-maintainer.
How do I become the EPEL maintainer? Do I submit a package review? Or is there a different method?
