Submission + - Fedora Legacy shutting down

An anonymous reader writes: Jesse Keating and David Eisenstein of the Legacy Team sent out a notice to the fedora-legacy-announce mailing list stating that Fedora Legacy is shutting down.

"In case any of you are not aware, the Fedora Legacy project is in the process of shutting down.

The current model for supporting maintenance distributions is being re-examined. In the meantime, we are unable to extend support to older Fedora Core releases as we had planned. As of now, Fedora Core 4 and earlier distributions are no longer being maintained.

Discussions last night on the #Fedora-Legacy channel have brought to light the fact that certain Fedora Legacy properties (servers) may be going away soon, such as the repository at http://download.fedoralegacy.org/ and the build server. Legacy folks need to let us know what they want to be done with the content in the repository mirrors. If you don't speak up, we may find ourselves in a place where 'yum update' commands will fail in the near future for the Red Hat and Fedora Core releases that Legacy has supported in the past.

If there are any issues you need to discuss regarding these events, you are welcome to discuss them on our IRC channel (channel #Fedora-Legacy on the freenode IRC network http://freenode.net/), or on the Fedora Legacy discussion list: https://www.redhat.com/mailman/listinfo/fedora-leg acy-list
