Just don't look back. Concentrate on FC3 and newer. ;)

Old fedora.us infrastructure is only kept alive for errata support,
provided that a packager still supports FC2 and older.

Because as many src.rpms as possible were imported. And because keeping
the packages in CVS has made it easier for the fedora.us people to prepare
the occasional update for FC2 and older. Early CVS activity also resulted
in early testing [of import scripts, Makefile.common e.g.].
