I would note, and Tom would actually be a better person to expound on
this that Red Hat has a tendency (at least they used to) to leave the
minor number unchanged. E.g;

8.1.4 is shipped with RHEL5 
They release a service update
You now have 8.1.4-1.9

Or some such drivel. They do this because application vendors wet
themselves in fear if they see a version change midcyle no matter how
much you tell them it is just security and data fixes...

/me who has dealt with 3 "enterprise" vendors on this exact issues in
the last week.
