But is there enough "you" to go around to do the updates?  That's the real 
question here.  We can't stop people from being dumb and not upgrading their 
release when it goes dead.  If we gave them 2 years, they'd take it and still 
not upgrade and then what?  I think the Fedora project is really trying to 
reach a reasonable amount of time that it can throw its entire support 
behind.  The Legacy folks of past and present are totally awesome, and we 
could really use their knowledge and eagerness to help in perhaps more 
productive fashions.
