Isn't fedora's policy now, in general, to *not* backport fixes, but to
upgrade to the latest upstream version?
what does "in general" really mean?
I'm refering to item #3 on http://fedora.redhat.com/about/objectives.html
"3. Do as much of the development work as possible directly in the
upstream packages. This includes updates; our default policy will be to
upgrade to new versions for security as well as for bugfix and new
feature update releases of packages."
