well, there was a very small meeting (ie, me and jesse) yesterday, at the
appointed time (or thereabouts); but that's hardly representative. a
couple of others were present but didn't chime in on the issue of EOLs.

being in cambridge (the cambridge, not the other cambridge), i'm not sure
i can stay awake after midnight. if i'm not there,
1) i completely accept we're going to drop both RHs at some point, and
that that point is fast approaching.
2) i wouldn't dream of speaking for jesse, but the idea of 3 months for
RH73 and 6 months for RH9 was floated (20061001 and 20070101
3) if we're re-examining the question, i *beg* for six months notice for
RH73 as well as RH9. i honestly believe that six months is a more
professional sort of notice period than three, when it comes to upgrading
declaration of interest: i have a huge stack of RH73 boxes - some 60 of
them - that have to be reinstalled with CentOS by the EOL date. half of
them i can only take down between 0200 and 0400 every other sunday - hence
my feeling that 6 months is a reasonable notice period. i also have a
personal RH9 colo'ed box, but i'm going to be doing that on 20060731.
this isn't a justification, just me coming clean about my point of view!
