1.6... the old dulug listserv link is an alias to RH's listserv.  No 
need to list them twice.

This is a pretty good start.  My company has offered to take our draft 
and submit it to our PR firm, for them to gloss it up and make sure it 
gets to the right news agencies and whatnot.  If anybody has an 
objection to this (final version will be put up for review on the list 
prior to submission) please speak up soon.  Draft should be submitted 
to our agency on Monday.

 Press Release DRAFT:
 
 Who:
 
 The Fedora Legacy Team, made out of volunteers.
 
 What:
 
 The Fedora Legacy Project is an ongoing effort led and maintained by
 volunteers, which aims to provide security and critical bug fix errata
 for older versions of Red Hat Linux* (RHL) and Fedora Core (FC)     
 releases, after their official End of Life. This allows a longer 
 effective life for those releases, and is closer to the lifecycle that 
 most IT departments hope to get out of a Server Oriented Operating 
 System.
 
 The project is still gathering volunteers and resources, as well as
 drafting policies and security requirements. Other press
 releases will be published as the project progresses. With current
 resources and volunteers it seems possible to start providing
 errata starting the First (1st) of January 2004 for some RHL
 versions, just as these releases reach their End of Life by Red Hat   
 Inc.
 
 How:
 
 Groups of maintainers will produce the errata for their packages;
 these errata will undergo some classification and QA before being
 released. Digital signatures will ensure the integrity of the
 process.
 
 Errata will only be created to fix security problems as well as
 serious bugs; no new features or packages will be introduced on the
 Errata, unless they are required for the future management of errata on 
 that release.
 
 Where:
 
 Information on the project is currently available from the following
 places:
 
 1. http://www.fedora.us/wiki/FedoraLegacy
 2. fedora-legacy-list Mailing list, for subscriptions and archive:
 
 http://redhat.com/mailman/listinfo/fedora-legacy-list/
 
 When:
 
 Now. Feel free to join in.
