Can you please report the issue through the regular support channels (http://www.redhat.com/support/), so it is properly investigated and prioritized?
Comment 3 Dave Love 2013-08-21 10:13:13 EDT
We have an academic contract entitlement only to patches, not support, I'm told.
I was just reporting in the hope of being useful.
Comment 4 Tomas Mraz 2013-08-21 10:51:22 EDT
OK, thank you
Comment 5 RHEL Product and Program Management 2013-10-13 19:14:51 EDT
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.
Comment 6 Tomas Mraz 2017-09-22 09:15:53 EDT
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 transitioned to the Production 3 Phase on May 10, 2017.  During the Production 3 Phase, Critical impact Security Advisories (RHSAs) and selected Urgent Priority Bug Fix Advisories (RHBAs) may be released as they become available.

The official life cycle policy can be reviewed here:


This issue does not appear to meet the inclusion criteria for the Production Phase 3 and will be marked as CLOSED/WONTFIX. If this remains a critical requirement, please re-open the BZ and request a re-evaluation of the issue, citing a clear business justification.
