We could try, but people hardly ever read that stuff.  My primary
concern is getting bugs/requests for packages in the main Fedora
bugzilla and lists for stuff that is EOL.  We have an EOL for a reason.

That's possible whether a new domain is created or not.  I'm just
wondering if it would exacerbate the situation even more if it was
just a sub-domain of fp.o
