Yes, they have both Fedora 28 and Fedora 29 downloads of PHP 7.3.0 available. 
My problem is that I am running Fedora 25 on the server and that is end-of-life
so not being supported on RemiRepo is not a surprise.  But it does make things
more complicated!

OK, I'll try to figure that out.  I've never done a bug report before so may
take some time.  I'll try for 2018 though!

Thanks again Christoph.  Even though there is no solution your assistance and
persistence are appreciated.
