In my opinion, at least RHL 7.2 should be dropped. RHL 7.3 is just a 
point-release away from 7.2. No major changes are found between 7.2 and 7.3, 
thus providing an easy upgrade path to 7.3

RHL 7.3 is a very nice Linux release, which is widely run. So, again, in my 
opinion, let 7.3 be the only RHL 7.x supported by Fedora Legacy.

As for RHL 8.0, I don't run it, so I will not comment on this one.
