Ralf, no one but yourself is stopping you from being the catalyst for
getting people to do this. See a problem, be the agent to make it
better. When Fedora Legacy was falling apart you could have taken it
over.. but it would seem you just wanted to save up your problems for
later emails. If you want to make an LTS, then start it up. If there
is a market for it, you can find the people and money to do so.
