This is an old can of worms, Bobby.

Basically, Quanah & the OpenLDAP developers are not interested in
supporting old versions, because it takes away from the time they have
to work on the current version.  We as users should support this,
because the software will stop growing if the devs spend too much time
on older versions.

It has nothing to do with not wanting to support old versions. It has to do with ensuring people do not encounter bugs already known to be fixed.

I've followed this policy for the decade or so that I've been using
OpenLDAP and been very successful.  I am running a large infrastructure
of Red Hat OL builds right now - dozens of replicas, with no problems

Then you have either been extremely lucky, or you aren't doing routine comparisons of the validity of your replicated data (assuming you are using syncrepl and not delta-syncrepl).

The other bit you clearly miss is the fact of RH using NSS instead of OpenSSL, which is a whole other can of worms.
