Comment 2 Caolan McNamara 2007-03-07 11:45:49 UTC
Is there any merit to backporting such things to RHEL-4 ? Improved CTL support
was a particular RHEL-5 goal, I'm not sure it will work out to individually
backport particular parts back to RHEL-4 without getting into a muddle with
needing to also backport the changes to the fonts, and icu upgrade and then the
various other fixes.

Comment 3 Lawrence Lim 2007-03-08 06:51:47 UTC
I dont think so. This should be consider as 'for the record' purpose. I would
recommend CLOSED as WONTFIX.
