Re: Proposed changes to Fedora Legacy Project

Discontinue the use of 'End of Life'.  This term is very misleading.  A
core release that Fedora Legacy maintains is not End of Life, it is just
maintained by different folks.  Instead one can use the term
'maintenance mode'.  When a give Fedora Core release enters "maintenance
mode", Fedora Legacy, the Community Maintenance Project, will take over
maintenance of the release for Security issues.

EOL is pretty "de facto" imo but perhaps "community maintenance mode" is a better descriptor because it is always only in "maintenance mode" after initial release as far as I understand. Otherwise, i think the changes send the right message to the community without getting terribly pedantic. I also champion the inclusion of the legacy key with the distro because i think it is asking a lot of the user base to have them "hand configure" their package management tool just to maintain updates that are already "blessed" official. -mf
