After the discussion from last month around the discontinued distribution
handling, here's a proposal how to handle them in future.

"Discontinued distributions" are the distributions, which receive no regular
security updates anymore.

These distributions stay accessible below DISCONTINUED name space. This means
SUSE:SL-10.0 is accessible as DISCONTINUED:SUSE:SL-10.0 for example.

We have currently the following distributions below DISCONTINUED names space:

SUSE Linux 10.0
SUSE Linux 10.1
Fedora 6
Mandriva 2006

We will remove the official projects and all repositories building against
them in two weeks (if we are not forced to do it earlier due to disc storage

The official 10.1 ftp tree from will get removed end of the

Your suggestions sounds good.

Will it be accessible through the DISCONTINUED:SUSE:SL-10.1 or 10.0 repository tree then? This would allow to use the old systems as they are used now, but everybody would explicitely need to select a "DISCONTINUED" path.
