> Hello,

> Please refer to  http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/LifeCycle for an

> We therefore regret the necessity of closing this bug report WONTFIX.
> Please upgrade to a currently maintained release of Fedora, currently
> either Fedora 7 or Fedora 8, and attempt to reproduce this bug.  If
> the bug still exists, feel free to re-open this bug report, changing
> the version accordingly, or file a new bug report (you can use the
> 'Clone as Bug' link at the top of this bug report in order to preserve
> the content of this bug in the new one).
> We regret any inconvenience that this may cause you, and thank you for
> your continued support of Fedora!
> <end>
> I propose starting with FC6, since that recently reached EOL and
> people would be understanding about it (hopefully).
> Comments/thoughts/suggestions/flames welcome.
