Yup. I just checked on the 8.1.2 directory tree and there are indeed
RPMs for 8.1.2. I'd agree with you, they may not have had time to
package the latest binaries for RHEL3 yet - opting to prioritize the
RHEL4 packages instead.

Not really that important whether it's 8.1.3 or an earlier 8.1.x
version. I was just surprised earlier why there aren't any RHEL3
packages in the 8.1.3 tree and thought the maintainers are ending
support for the older RHELs.

Stand before it and there is no beginning.
Follow it and there is no end.
Stay with the ancient Tao,
Move with the present.
