If people are still using 8.0, I guess I could step up and do the
packages. A few people would have to do the QA though, as I don't have
any 8.0 machine in production anymore.

I was looking into contributing to FL, so that could be it. BUT, if
everyone can upgrade to a newer version, my time could be better spent
doing RHL9 packages, and FC1 in a few months.

I think 7.2 should be dropped as the upgrade to 7.3 is easy.

There is also another alternative: support 7.2 and 8.0 only for priority
1 security bugs. For example: a remote http compromise. This would mean
only a package here and there instead of having one for every local
thing that comes out.
