Oh sure. I appreciate that no major versions updates can take place for
RHEL4. My question was more that if we told someone using RHEL4 to
upgrade to PostgreSQL 8.0+ in order to use some new PostGIS
functionality, and there was a problem that required contacting RedHat
support, would someone there turn around and say "Sorry - we're not
going to help you at all because you're not using PostgreSQL 7.4"? (i.e.
would the PostgreSQL upgrade void the support warranty?)
