Re: End of life for FC1?

Hi everyone,

I've looked at the fedora site for their release schedule, however, nowhere do I see when support for FC1 will end --- support in the sense that the team will make updates available. The reason I'm asking is that I would like to use FC for our linux lab and I'm not confortable with FC2 given that it is "rough around the edges". FC1 is ideal for our needs, but not if updates for it will end soon.

*Q:* What is the errata policy for The Fedora Project?


Security updates, bugfix updates, and new feature updates will all be available, through Red Hat and third parties. Updates may be staged (first made available for public qualification, then later for general consumption) when appropriate. In drastic cases, we may remove a package from The Fedora Project if we judge that a necessary security update is too problematic/disruptive to the larger goals of the project. Availability of updates should not be misconstrued as support for anything other than continued development and innovation of the code base. Updates will be available for two to three months after the release of the subsequent version; that is, updates for Fedora Core 1 will be provided for two to three months after the release of Fedora Core 2, and so forth.

Red Hat will not be providing an SLA (Service Level Agreement) for resolution times for updates for The Fedora Project. Security updates will take priority. For packages maintained by external parties, Red Hat may respond to security holes by deprecating packages if the external maintainers do not provide updates in a reasonable time. Users who want support, or maintenance according to an SLA, may purchase the appropriate Red Hat Enterprise Linux product for their use.
