I just posted that long list to show that users do indeed get non working
repos, contrary to what Andrew said.

I never said user's don't always get working repos, actually what I
mean by "breaking the package manager" is exactly that. The package
manager works perfectly fine until one day *poof* something is done on
the server and any action you try to take in your package manager
fails. IMO that's broken.

2. One month before the EOL add a small package which will force that
any sessioned login on a console will print out: "This product life
cycle finishes on $DATE. PLEASE UPGRADE!"

This mentality is why we have this issue to begin with. Just because
there will be no future development work on a particular distribution
doesn't mean there are users that still use it, are happy with it and
have no compelling reason to upgrade.

Now, I still see 11.1 repos on and so I don't understand what the issue is. If a
3rd party deleted their repo, that's beyond our control.
