Did you look at a system before posting?  Or just shoot from 
the hip?

[herrold at centos-4 ~]$ lynx -dump 
http://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHBA-2007-0365.html | grep -i srpm
[herrold at centos-4 ~]$

no linked SRPMS

[herrold at centos-4 ~]$ lynx -dump 
http://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHEA-2007-0223.html | grep -i srpm
[herrold at centos-4 ~]$

no linked SRPMS

... cannot prove the fix exists to me so far.  Sad that Red 
Hat feels it has to play these games.

but I see in my mirroring:


dunno when it showed up and it is not worth checking my detail 
logs, because:

Johnny notes it has been updated and is in updates which have 
been issued over a week ago -- it is a convenience fix, and 
not a security matter

and _looking_, yum shows it updated on myC5 system

Les ... you have an open bug -- you think it is fixed 
upstream.  No SRPMS are noted in teh fix release which you 
seemingly were able to find.  The tests I did, you can do.

Why not lend a hand and point to available source RPMs rather 
than carp on the mailing list on stale matters?

If you dislike non-security related updates notifications, 
write a tool to provide you information on the changes.
