But has anyone ever tried contacting these big companies and explaining the situation to maybe get some resources for the Legacy Project from them? Or does that sound too much like begging to people here? Companies like Dell just approach the Infrastructure Team and say "Hey, we could give you guys a couple of our servers, where would you like us to send them?" I guess it doesn't work like that for others, but they might just want to cooperate. Or they might just not care that their customers run unpatched systems. Since they also offer support on their software I guess that helping Legacy out might just benefit them too.Frankly I'm done with this project. I've tried to pass off leadership, andthen that got a bit sabotaged by what Fedora Project wants to do withlifespan in future releases (which I think is a good happy middle ground), but it isn't really interesting to do support for older Fedoras for the nextyear or so.If somebody wants to run with it, by all means. I'll turn over information about how to use the build system and push to the mirrors. I don't want to see Legacy to touch the newer Fedora releases that might carry the new longerlifespan, I think 13 months is the best possible compromise.
I was just thinking out loud really. I don't expect it is possible to revive the Legacy Project at this point, but was just thinking that maybe trying to get companies that build on Fedora (not just Fedora Legacy) to supply resources might be a good idea. I don't know if this already being done, but as I said: I was just thinking out loud. I think you did a great job, Jesse, too bad it has to end like this.
Now, let me get started on migrating those last servers running legacy versions of Fedora Core...
