[CentOS] Need httpd / apache RPM > 2.2.3 for 5.3

OK, here is the interesting part :-)

I'm new here as of about 4 months ago, and I just asked some coworkers
why we went with 2.2.10 instead of the 2.2.3 that comes with CentOS

Apparently at the time we'd been having some problems with mod_perl
crashing (and still are in fact - I'm working on it slowly but
surely), and we'd hired an outside consulting company to help out with
it.  Their first comment was that 2.2.3 was "extremely buggy" and that
we should definitely not go with it.  So that's what we did.  The
newest release at the time was 2.2.10 and that's where we are.

There was also so speculation that our DB2 client did not work so well
with 2.2.3

Can someone answer me this - I see that today we have 2.2.3 patch
level 22 as our most recent release.

Is there a document that will tell me what patch levels were shipped
with the different releases of CentOS?  In particular 5.2?

Maybe I don't really need > 2.2.3, I dunno.  I've seen some other
evidence that this outside contracting company did not seem to know as
much as they let on.  For starters, they did not get very far with our
mod_perl problem.  I got a lot further in about a week of googling,
and I came into it with no knowledge of mod_perl, and no debug-level
knowledge of Apache (albeit 7 or 8 years of apache config experience)
