At the Malawi .mw registry we are running FRED on the Fedora Linux platform since 2015
and so far it is working very well.

However, we have faced a few issues upgrading to Fedora 28 where the current FRED
repository package is giving error during installation and operation, the database upgrade
script gives errors, uwsgi crashes etc ...  it seems NIC.CZ needs to resolve a few issues for
this platform.

We received indications from NIC.CZ that these would be resolved by end of this month but
we are yet to get an update.
