Yeah, but ignoring the business side (which I recognize as an important
side), CentOS is often the best choice for many people stuck on RHL 9 or
7.3. And my goal is really to do the best thing for the people who went to
all the trouble to report a bug.

I agree for the pre-7.3 (and the poor, lonely 8), but 7.3 and 9 are
currently maintained by Legacy, so I don't feel bad about putting them into
NEEDINFO. If a Red Hat person would do the actual closing in early 2007,
that'd be cool.

Does someone @redhat want to do the honors on the ancient ones sometime
