The RHEL fixes filtered thru into the Centos repositories a couple of
days ago. I guess the same will have happened with any versions of
Fedora which a) use 5.8.8 and b) are still supported. I think that's
Fedora 7 and 8. But my only Fedora systems run Fedora 9 (which was never
effected) so I can't check.
