Yeah, I know there are 3rd party rpm packages.  I mentioned that in
a previous email. ;o)  I also mentioned that the 3rd party RPMs of
6.9 that I saw before, were not just 6.9, but 6.9 plus random extra
stuff patched in.  Things that would not be present in Red Hat
packages.  As stated previously, I suggested that people could
use those if desired.

Having said that, I haven't looked at the rpms at the above URL,
so they could be quite different from the ones I had previously
looked at.  As always, caveat emptor.

If I do create a set of 6.9 rpms, they'll be done in standard
Red Hat fashion.  No experimental doodads, etc. ;)
