If these dates are correct, they should provide a updated kernel for
sparc, as atleast on my calendar is the 25th March and sparc shouldn't
expire for another couple of days. True, it's within a couple of days
but they should be true to their word.

 Personally I have given up on RH long time ago, I choose other distro's
 that doesn't expire their products as soon as the next best thing
 has arrived. It is not always possible to update your systems as there
 is other things that depends on them. I have a Solaris 2.6 box (even
 if 9 is out already, and can be downloaded for free for that matter)
 just because it is not possible to upgrade those machines.
