Re: [opensuse-buildservice] openSUSE:Tools dropped 11.3 repo already?
 OK forget zypper and openSUSE:Tools for the moment...

 What I'm simply trying to say is: just because 11.3 is itself EOL, that
 doesn't mean OBS projects should start dropping the 11.3 repo right away.

 Do others not agree?

 I understand 11.3 is EOL'd, but it seems like Tools repo should be special,
as it contains zypper -- the tool that lets you upgrade.

No, it was never part of that repo.

 I understand that EOL means no longer "community supported" - that's fine..
but it seems to me that "community supported" is a completely different
concept than "exists as a repo in a project".

 After all, openSUSE:Tools has RHEL 4 and all these other non-SUSE repos...
 are those distributions "community supported" by the openSUSE project??

 So I don't understand the rush to remove the repo.

 Needless to say, I still have stable 11.3 systems around that I'm not ready
to upgrade just yet...
