Just a comment on the mysql/php/postgresql rpms in the dev repo.  I see
Johnny, and I'm sure others, are awaiting the release of the Rehdat Web
Application Stack srpms -
https://www.redhat.com/archives/nahant-list/2006-October/msg00091.html -
Once those are available they apparently will be security patched for 3
years from now - https://www.redhat.com/security/updates/rhappstack/

Does CentOS or someone have a copy of the SRPMS, or know what versions are
available?  There must be someone on the list here with a subscription...  

(My point was maybe to wait on pushing the php, mysql and postgresql rpms
from dev into centosplus in case Redhat backports patches to slightly older
versions than what are in the dev repo)
