Linux Magazine: Subscription Woes

For the third year I've been receiving a subscription to Linux Magazine, however for about 6 months I'd not actually received it, but the subscripton was still valid and I did not change any of my customer data such as the address. It took me a while to realize that something was wrong, and I just bought it off the rack during that time.



I finally got around to writing to their customer support email address, and the response I got was completely underwhelming. Most email responses were to the effect of "sorry, can't find you in our database", with no further questions or follow up. I'd reply back with details about my mailing address, billing information, and information directly off the mailing label, and I sent this to a wider distribution as I began searching for all related Linux Mag emails that I could find. Replies to this varied widely. One told me that I had a subscription and it was valid until Feb 04 but with no follow up on my request for missing back issues. Another reply to the same email said that they still couldn't find my customer id in their database, again, with no follow-up.

RedHat Ships Outdated Apache

Saw some discussion today of the RedHat 8 and 9 distributions. Each of these distributions ships Apache 2.0.40, however Apache.org has released a number of revisions with important security fixes and the like.




Does RedHat continue to support the distribution if you upgrade the httpd package to something more recent, say 2.0.46?
