Re: Some supporting ideas regarding fedora legacy project when FC6 is out today

Quoting Robinson Tiemuqinke <hahaha_30k@xxxxxxxxx>:
Based on the above fact, one idea will flow out naturally: based on the limited resourses of fedora legacy groups, and facing losing users because limited legacy support is flatted to each FC legacy release. Is it possible to support only some subset of releases? We can take the following strategy:
Sure. We can just support one release if we want. Kind of makes the project rather pointless though if we keep changing the rules constantly. The _ONLY_ way there is a justification for Fedora Legacy is if it has, and maintains, a schedule so that people can depend on it. Otherwise, there really is no point to it.
1, for each odd-numbered release, take it as a alpha version release, and don't support it with limited fedora legacy resources. So FC5, FC7, FC9 will not go into fedora legacy. and they will be in official(redhat) support status in no more than half year, or even a quarter.
And people who unkowning install one of those and then find out about FL are just out of luck?
2, for each even-numbered release, take it as a post-beta version release. these version will stay in official support for more than one year like FC4, then after its ending of official support, the release will go to fedora legacy for another one and half years or even longer based on resources.
This implies that Fedora Core will support the even numbered releases for more than a year which is not something they will guarantee. So this won't work.
This way we can bring FC releases back into the free RH years since RH6.0 to RH9, helpful for FC, RH and users.
I don't understand what you are trying to say here. You want to reduce support, then you compare that to the fantastic support of the old RHL days? Doesn't make any sense to me. If FL is to have any trust from the users and Fedora community, it _must_ keep a support schedule, and not change it willy nilly. (Actually, it is okay to extend support for something, or even reduce support for future unreleased versions, but not to reduce or eliminate support that was already promised for a release that is already in use). -- Eric Rostetter The Department of Physics The University of Texas at Austin Go Longhorns! -- fedora-legacy-list mailing list fedora-legacy-list@xxxxxxxxxx https://www.redhat.com/mailman/listinfo/fedora-legacy-list
