No... RedHat staff occasionally post on here, but I would watch their Bugzilla, or just not rely on their packages in the first place.

We (Jisc) update our repositories for the Moonshot (dynamic realm lookup) version of FreeRADIUS within weeks of the official release of FR because those releases generally involve either security fixes or stability fixes that we would like our customers to have.

Our packages require other dependencies though that are not necessary when you don’t run a Moonshot service.

With Regards
