That is a very sensible suggestion. Most of my client's in-store
production database servers are still running RH7.x, because there
has not been (until now) any practical business reason to "upgrade"

Dapper LTS, while I explore the boundaries on my laptop (Edgy) and my
expect-to-crash-and-burn making experiments desktop.
