Fedora Core "With Fedora Core 6 Test 2 set to be released July 26th, it is time we announce the End of Life of our various Legacy supported releases. After much discussion on fedora-legacy-list and the #fedora-legacy IRC channel on the freenode network, we have decided to end of life the following releases when FC6 Test2 is released: Fedora Core 1 & 2, Red Hat Linux 7.3 & 9." In the mean time, Red Hat is prepping its next big release, RHEL 5, supposedly a rival to Novell's SLED 10.

The thing that should keep legacy distribution 'supported' by Fedora legacy is interest in them. If there is not interest, then there is really no sense in maintaining them. I am sure the updates to date will continue to be available. If there is any interest, then the Legacy project should continue supporting them. I am sure this is not just a knee jerk action. It is quite carefully considered
