Yeah, I basically have set a personal policy for the Fedora Asterisk
packages to avoid upgrading to a new Asterisk major version in a
stable Fedora release.  New major versions of Asterisk will always be
introduced into Rawhide. So F7 and F8 will always have 1.4.x.  If F9
goes GA with 1.4.x it'll stay at 1.4.x.  Heavy users of Asterisk are
notoriously averse to upgrading - there are still probably a lot
Asterisk PBXs out there running on 2.4 *kernels* let alone newer
versions of Asterisk.  Many Asterisk PBXs still run Asterisk 1.2
(which is still being supported by Digium).
