As part of this EOL process, will FL continue to host the old archives 
of RPMs past the EOL date or will that hosting also be going away?

Will FL be doing a final build of all packages for FC2 x86_64 to finally 
bring the security fixes to that architecture (old Fedora updates are 
built for x86_64, just not legacy updates)?  It would be a nice thing to 
do, as there are some packages (PHP, for example) that don't compile 
right out of the source RPM for x86_64.
