Would be good if you had mentioned the CAN numbers of the
vulnerabilities you get noted about (CVE CAN-2004-0942 and
CAN-2004-0885? they are fixed in httpd-2.0.52-3.1). You can check
against "rpm -q --changelog httpd | less" output.

As soon as FC4 is released I guess Joe Orton will have time to release
an update for FC3 if things are to be fixed.

From my point of view third party repositories should not exchange Core
packages, though some do like Dag's or ATrpms. But I see none which has
a self build httpd (Apache2).

It will have effects to your update tool setup as you will have to care
for avoiding conflicts. If you compile from sources and thus you will
have to care for security updates yourself, well, you then have a big
job doing so for 20 hosts. So always better to use RPMs. But again,
which security issues are they you claim to need fixes?
