As of Monday, July 2nd 2007, Fedora Core 5 has gone into retirement.  No 
further updates will be issued for FC5 or FE5 as we refocus our 
developer attention to development of F8 and maintenance of our most 
recent stable Fedora 7.

The Fedora Project now runs on a N+2 + 1 month support schedule.  This 
means the supported lifetime of FC5 was scheduled to end one month after 
the release of F7.  FC5 was supported from March 20th 2006 through July 
2nd 2007, or a good ~15.5 months.

By the current Fedora 8 development schedule, the supported lifetime of 
FC6 is to continue to a minimum of early December 2007.
