We should really be bumping and pushing an errata if RHEL picked up
I am not sure who the we here is. I am guessing Red Hat but it could
also be EPEL. If there is something we can do inside of EPEL, I will
try to get it done this week.
the EPEL package and pulled it into core RHEL anyway because if
had been previously using it in EPEL for other reasons (and 100s of
enterprises do sync EPEL) they would already be in a situation where
they're running an unsupported version, there is no other fix to that
and Red Hat engineering needs to improve their processes in this
regard because there is a number of these issues each el7 cycle.
The usual issue is the following:
1. The package gets pulled into RHEL-7-next by whatever arcane
processes does that.
2. The owner usually fixes some problem and thinks that the version
they are pushing with the fix will be accepted internally.
3. The fix is too late in the arcane processes and RHEL ships with an
4. Everyone points fingers at each other for a couple of months after
a release. Someone tries to iron out problems.
5. We have a good release cycle next time.
6. Some arcane process changes
7. Goto 1.
I think we have done this dance every other minor release since 5.1
I have some ideas on how we can try to 'fix' this from now on that I
will be presenting at FLOCK next week so that releng and related
groups can fix/kill.

Can you not just rebuild nodejs, which will rebuild the bundled
http-parser, against the new 1.0.2 build in 7.4?
