I was just thinking out loud really. I don't expect it is possible to  
revive the Legacy Project at this point, but was just thinking that  
maybe trying to get companies that build on Fedora (not just Fedora  
Legacy) to supply resources might be a good idea. I don't know if  
this already being done, but as I said: I was just thinking out loud.  
I think you did a great job, Jesse, too bad it has to end like this.

Now, let me get started on migrating those last servers running  
legacy versions of Fedora Core...
