With Fedora Core 6 Test 2 set to be released July 26th, it is time we announce 
the End of Life of our various Legacy supported releases.

After much discussion on fedora-legacy-list and the #fedora-legacy IRC channel 
on the freenode network, we have decided to end of life the following 
releases when FC6 Test2 is released:

Fedora Core 1
Fedora Core 2

This will leave us with supporting just releases 3 and 4 of Fedora Core.

As to our Red Hat Linux releases (7.3 and 9) the following has been decided:

New issues (bugs) will be accepted until October 1st of this year.  No new 
bugs will be accepted after that mark.  All existing bugs will be resolved to 
the best of our ability by December 31st of this year.  What hasn't been 
completed by then will not be completed by the Fedora Legacy project.  This 
will be the end of Fedora Legacy's support of the Red Hat Linux line of 
distributions.  We will continue focusing our efforts on the Fedora Core 
line, and improving our integration with the Fedora project in whole.

Please watch for more announcements regarding our integration with the Fedora 
project, and for schedule information should it change (Fedora Core release 
schedules can and do slip from time to time)

Please direct any questions to the fedora-legacy-list at email list.
