I dont make that decision and my personal opinion on this does not 
matter in the big picture of things, but why is it that pushing over 
additional burden on Red Hat projected as the only solution here?. Its 
not like the engineers arent drowned in tons of work already. The 
resources involved are not unlimited.  Red Hat maintaining older 
releases will have a *negative impact* on forward development affecting 
every user eventually. Wasn't Fedora supposed to be the place where the 
community can get involved and do things? . Now is your opportunity.  
Why not help by validating the process of using Fedora legacy instead of 
treating it as some kind of unwanted step child?.  I dont understand the 
aversion. There is a lot of work from QA to documentation that can be 
done by the community. Please step up to do it instead.
