Frankly I'm done with this project.  I've tried to pass off leadership, and 
then that got a bit sabotaged by what Fedora Project wants to do with 
lifespan in future releases (which I think is a good happy middle ground), 
but it isn't really interesting to do support for older Fedoras for the next 
year or so.

If somebody wants to run with it, by all means.  I'll turn over information 
about how to use the build system and push to the mirrors.  I don't want to 
see Legacy to touch the newer Fedora releases that might carry the new longer 
lifespan, I think 13 months is the best possible compromise.
