Are they running 7.3.20?  Will they update to 7.3.21 promptly when we
ship it?  Or are they using whatever Red Hat includes in RHEL-3?
(which is still 7.3.19 I believe)

One of the reasons for losing interest in frequent updates is that
it seems most of the people we hear from who are running 7.3.x are
running a pretty obsolete "x".  If we produce an update and no one
actually installs it, we're just wasting time with make-work.
