I'll go one further. We run commercial web sites on CentOS 5.3 which 
must also be PCI compliant. Because of the security issues, the auditors 
have been complaining for two months that we don't have PHP 5.2.11 
installed yet, putting our PCI certification in jeopardy. When 5.2.12 is 
released, probably next month, we will have 30 days to get it installed.

We are trying to figure out how to handle this issue short of having to 
compile PHP ourselves. That would violate the agreement we have with the 
hosting service.
