Hello,

The policy is to remove all traces of that one to show the users that it does
not exist anymore. Also the main ftp repo will go away, so even when you
build something, it might not be installable, because of lack of the main ftp
repo.

Bad policy.

sorry, but that is not a serious question. Supported distros are still there
and if you need to build for older ones you can still do so on your own
systems. This was the intention of the initial mail.

Well, and you know, there is a big difference between managing some packages and setting up and managing an own buildservice.

If you do not like that openSUSE has only a 2 years life time, it would be
better to discuss this on -project. But you should have some suggestion how
to achieve this, since it is plenty of work ...

Well, SUSE openess has become much better since the pre openSUSE days, but the day when an outsider can influence the way the distribution is handled has still to come. So any discussion there is useless from the beginning.

Ciao
