Re: State of 7.2/8.0 in Fedora Legacy

Hash: SHA1

With the recent addition of Red Hat Linux 9, and the nearing end of life of Fedora Core 1, it's becoming apparent that the Fedora Legacy project lacks the man power to properly support all these releases.

After trolling through bugzilla last night, it was quickly apparent that many of the packages in limbo were waiting on RHL 7.2/8.0 builds/QA. I've made noise before about dropping 7.2/8.0 and there has always been people making noise that they didn't want to see it dropped. However I have not seen much (if any) community support for these releases. For these reasons I am more inclined than ever to drop these releases.

For the most part, RHL 7.3 packages (and RHEL2.1 packages) can be rebuilt to run on 7.2, and RHL9 (RHEL3) packages can be rebuilt to run on 8.0. However without proper testing and engineering by the Fedora Legacy community it would be irresponsible for us to just do these simple steps.

As we move forward, streamlining updates is absolutely necessary. In order to streamline, the bottlenecks need to be addressed, and today these road blocks (aside from me and my personal time management issues) are RHL 7.2 and RHL 8.0.

So again, I broach the subject of removing these releases from official Fedora Legacy supported releases. We will still be supporting the overwhelming majority of users and it is the best use of the limited resources of the Fedora Legacy project.

Please provide your (relevant) feedback. Thanks.
