I'm going to go ahead with this after OLS and after FC4, unless someone
really objects.

For Red Hat Linux 7.3 and 9 (472 bugs, by the way), I'm going to use a
message like:

   Red Hat Linux 7.3 and Red Hat Linux 9 are maintained by the Fedora Legacy
   project for security updates only. If this problem is a security issue,
   please reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a security
   issue and hasn't been resolved in the current FC5 updates or in the FC6
   test release, change the version to match. (In either case, make sure to
   check the box indicating that the requested information was provided --

   Please note that Legacy security update support for these products will
   stop on December 31st, 2006. Please upgrade any systems still running
   these releases to a current Fedora Core release or Red Hat Enterprise
   Linux or comparable. After the end of this year, any Red Hat Linux 7.3
   and Red Hat Linux 9 bugs still awaiting information will be closed as
   "can't fix".

   Thank you for your help.

Well I would go with a list of links at the end of each name in parenthesis:

For the latest Fedora: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/
For Red Hat Enterprise: http://www.redhat.com/rhel-link-goes-here
For a comparable OS: http://www.centos.org,https://www.scientificlinux.org/
