I believe the site used to be called k12osn.org.  I think it is an old 
link and a typo combined.

>> On the K12Linux site (https://fedorahosted.org/k12linux/) it says that K12Linux EL6 is the long-term supported LTSP distribution that will receive updates until the year 2017. On the CentOS site, however, it lists 2017 as the EOL for CentOS 5, with 6 being supported until 30 Nov 2020.

IIRC Red Hat changed their lifecycle to extend support for 3 additional 
years some time back, probably since the support dates for K12Linux were 
established.  I expect nothing will stop working in 2017 since really 
nothing will change on that date.

RHEL6 goes "end of production on November 30 2020.
