The Fedora package we used is the best choice since (1) it has already
proven to fix the issues as cited in the bug report, and (2) Fedora is
the source for upstream vendor packages anyway.

I like to stay away from 3rd party repos as much as possible to avoid
overlap. CentOS and EPEL have most everything our sites need. If there
is something we really need that's not in one of those, we'll rebuild
the source and put it in our custom LocalCentos repo.
