Hi Dave. Thanks for the upfront notification. I've been using Fedora Legacy 
since FC1, and it's sad to see that it's thrown in the towel.

I'm still using FC2 from day to day on one machine, and think that it's one of 
the better Fedora releases, though no longer supported. Can you give me a URL 
for the mirror, preferably for apt, but yum will do.

I'll try and download as many of the FC2 packages that I can, depending on 
harddrive space.

Thanks again for letting us know in advance that the server is going down 
soon. That has to be better than a Debian multimedia repo, that when Etch 
went stable, just trashed all the packages on the Sarge repo, with no upfront 
notification at all.

All the best.
