Re: kernel 2.6.16-1.2107_FC5 breaks graphical boot (and cups and httpd)

I'm not trying to point fingers and/or throw mud.
My question is, will it be possible to find a mid-route, which combines
the shortest possible vulnerability period with a minimal risk of having
DOA machines? You'd agree that having 1000s of DOA machines doesn't
really sit well with Fedora's mission statement... (Though, in Dave's defense, a machine that doesn't boot is a machine
which cannot be compromised ;))
What do you think is the "mid-route" for time critical security fixes?

the mid-route seems to be that there are no longer 2107_FC5 kernels in fc5 updates or updates-testing.

$ lftp download.fedora.redhat.com:/pub/fedora/linux/core/updates/5/i386> ls *2107**
   2096 is the last

$ lftp download.fedora.redhat.com:/pub/fedora/linux/core/updates/testing/5/i386> ls *2107*
   2069 is old

and davej yesterdays 2108 is history
today is  2111
