There is a php-5.1.6 in el5b2...
also, the decision was made within CentOS to move to 5.1.6 over 5.1.4,
mainly due to the fact that the 5.1.4 we had access to has known
security issues. And I know lots of people have concerns about leaving
vulnerable packages out there. We did do some testing internally to
ensure the 5.1.6 published on dev. didnt break anything ( within reason ).
once/if rhwas is published, we will definitely look into sync'ing the
setup with what we can provide ( might mean an ugly (Epoc)++, but if its
required, then so be it ). For the time being, we need to make the best
decision, based on what we have available to and what the users of the
repo are already using. 5.1.6 seemed to be the best fit.
Hope this clears up the situation a bit.
