Well, that's fine, but people do not read docs >:-)

What I suggest is something that when the user tries to start YaST,
directly tells him that that the release he is running is obsolete.
Some kind of obnoxious message ;-)

And of course, it would have to be for 13.2 and onwards.

If you want to be obnoxious and obvious, which is kinda required for
most users that never fire up yast's online update, you probably want
apper to do the popping-upping.

Not sure if there's support for that in apper.

No, should probably be a cron job set to begin just prior to eol and be
persistant and obnoxious after eol.

note: many remove PackageKit/apper in favor of zypper/you/...
