True.  But when it does, we should look very strongly at making an EL 
version out of it.  That was my point.

Does anyone on this list have experience with packaging software for RPM 
distros?  I've never done it, but I'm certainly willing to help out.

And in these two cases, they really did need to do that.  The OO.o 
upgrade was an absolute necessity due to the OOXML file format 
compatibility issue, and the Firefox update is because RH simply don't 
have the resources to maintain older versions of Firefox.
