Fedora Core is a platform designed for rapid technology advancement.
It sounds like these ISPs want compatibility and features provided
over longer periods of time, such as what we provide in Red Hat
Another option would be for them (or someone) to maintain custom
php4 packages in a 3rd party repository somewhere for Fedora.
Hope this helps.
Just curious: Could this repository be fedora extras? Or is there a
problem with duplicate functionality/replacing core packages?
