asking upstream to upgrade:



As they always say to me:

"If this issue is critical or in any way time sensitive, please
raise a ticket through the regular Red Hat support channels to ensure
it receives the proper attention and prioritization to assure a timely
resolution. For information on how to contact the Red Hat production
support team, please visit: https://access.redhat.com/support"

As "Hick's law" say https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hick's_law
