Such enlightenment would be a very attractive option, from this
customer's point of view.
We've put significant effort into compensating for the
determination of the vendor of our Linux-distro-of-choice to stay
18 months or so behind updates recommended as 'critical' for key
components of our infrastructure, such as OpenSSL or BIND.
The vendor involved may have addressed the problem by now, but
committing more resources to evaluating whether this is so and
revising practices which we've taken care to make work isn't
a particularly attractive course of action.
