I appreciate the response.  If you recall I did post the link so it's a
safe assumption that I read the page and understood it's content.  What
I'm after is whether there's any other information channel that might
not be so obvious for seeing if there might be action coming up for an
particular issue.  Being in a highly regulated industry the legal
department has a tough job.  I work within the guidelines they set.

I am restricted to 5.1 as approved by legal.  5.2 is not approved so 5.3
isn't an option either.  Once I can sort out whether something
"official" will fix this I can then determine how to pursue this
internally.  A workaround fix does not address that the kickstart-built
system will still contain this bug as it will be built from RPM's that
are not fixed.
