Actually, it's redhat who owes an apology to the commnity at large for
_already_ creating a maintainance hassle for gcc and other free software
projects because they receive bogus bug reports because redhat shipped
a broken, experimental, unreleased compiler as if it were an official
version. Worse, creating a maintainance nightmare for almost everybody by
making redhat binary incompatibly to other linux distributions, therefore
effectively forking gnu/linux in a way unseen before.(*)

However, I can understand that you have to support redhat and have
probably lost your neutrality.

(*) redhat is a major distribution and obviously now plays monopoly games.
