It wasn't my intention to implicate RHEL in any way.
My point being that a "stable release policy" != "stagnant release
policy". If the maintainer feels that a new version fixes major
deficiencies in the existing version (beyond a simple bug fix) he should
be allowed to push a major upgrade (given sufficient testing) even if it
risk breaking existing installations.

... And if you don't trust your maintainers to make such a decision -
why the hell have you given them the right to package the software to
begin with?
