Well, I added a smiley, but "discontinued" nevertheless is not the case
afaics -- especially as I've heard that livna will continue to support
new Fedora and EL releases. And in fact support for EL is even something
Livna didn't offer in the past.

And your suggestion is what? Remove all the old stuff? I guess the users
on old and outdated releases won't like that (but not sure if the livna

I guess it's a simple mirror problem as livna afaics works with symlinks
that some mirrors afaics don't retrieve.
