Fedora Legacy shutting down

In case any of you are not aware, the Fedora Legacy project is in the
process of shutting down.

The current model for supporting maintenance distributions is being
re-examined.  In the meantime, we are unable to extend support to older
Fedora Core releases as we had planned. As of now, Fedora Core 4 and
earlier distributions are no longer being maintained.

Discussions last night on the #Fedora-Legacy channel have brought to 
light the fact that certain Fedora Legacy properties (servers) may be 
going away soon, such as the repository at 
<http://download.fedoralegacy.org/> and the build server.  Legacy folks 
need to let us know what they want to be done with the content in the 
repository mirrors.  If you don't speak up, we may find ourselves in a 
place where 'yum update' commands will fail in the near future for the 
Red Hat and Fedora Core releases that Legacy has supported in the past.

If there are any issues you need to discuss regarding these events, you
are welcome to discuss them on our IRC channel (channel #Fedora-Legacy
on the freenode IRC network <http://freenode.net/>), or on the Fedora
Legacy discussion list:

	   Jesse Keating
	   David Eisenstein
	of the Legacy Team.
