And why would we do that? If *you* wanted to ship AS with RedHat,
*you* should have contacted the development team and *you*
should have politely asked about the version to ship. That's
the way things work and do not try to put them on their head.

And you should not insult the development team in an afterthought
just to cover up the absence of forethought.

The AS guys update stuff on their website, they just cannot
be bothered to prefer RedHat over any other distribution.
