Hello list,

the red hat faq on supposes that 
the newest version of FR is in the official channel.
Here on a RHEL6 server there is only version 2.1.10 in the repo (and 
only the base package, not the additional modules like mysql, ldap and 
so on):

# yum info freeradius\*
Loaded plugins: product-id, rhnplugin, security, subscription-manager
Updating certificate-based repositories.

Summary     : High-performance and highly configurable free RADIUS 
License     : GPLv2+ and LGPLv2+
Description : The FreeRADIUS Server Project is a high performance and 
highly configurable
             : GPL'd free RADIUS server. The server is similar in some 
respects to
             : Livingston's 2.0 server.  While FreeRADIUS started as a 
variant of the
             : Cistron RADIUS server, they don't share a lot in common 
any more. It now has
             : many more features than Cistron or Livingston, and is 
much more configurable.
             : FreeRADIUS is an Internet authentication daemon, which 
implements the RADIUS
             : protocol, as defined in RFC 2865 (and others). It allows 
Network Access
             : Servers (NAS boxes) to perform authentication for dial-up 
users. There are
             : also RADIUS clients available for Web servers, firewalls, 
Unix logins, and
             : more.  Using RADIUS allows authentication and 
authorization for a network to
             : be centralized, and minimizes the amount of 
re-configuration which has to be
             : done when adding or deleting new users.

Where can I get the newest version of FR, which channel is meant?
