Quite right. CentOS supports their OS, not the component packages. So I 
cannto ask *them* a FreeRADIUS question. They tell me to come HERE.

I reply, gee, I think I *am* on the wrong list.

I am looking for a FreeRADIUS *USERS* forum. Obivously, with FreeRADIUS 
1.x in wide deployment in RHEL and CentOS there HAS to be a 'community' 
of 1.x users, or at the least a community of FreeRADIUS users who, even 
if they have migrated to later versions themselves, still *remember* the 
basic syntax of a version of FreeRADIUS that they must have been using 
*very* recently (for anyone getting a decent life-expectancy out of 
servers and OS's, three years is 'recent'). I had thought that *this* 
forum would have many people like this. But maybe people only come here 
for 'bleeding edge' stuff. If so, could someone be kind enough to direct 
me to the FreeRADIUS community/forum where 1.x is still discussed and
