In case you want to mirror them for your own build service, this is your last

Please, don't do such things without advanced notice. Don't remove 10.1
(which is still a maintained product!) without giving people time to

For example, I'll need to switch several of our servers to repositories
based on 10.1 to repositories based on SLE10. In some cases, I'll first
have to make sure that a SLE10 source exists for those repositories.
this means that I'll have to get the respective admins to change that
for their projects, and hope that SLE10 will be suitable as build

So could you please give a timeline?
