This is already being done through a maintenance update to
release-notes-openSUSE at EOL time. E.g. for 12.2 this was
https://build.opensuse.org/package/show/openSUSE:12.2:Update/release-notes-openSUSE.2486

You

mean that you document in the release notes for a certain release,
in this case 12.2, that it is not maintained any more.

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directly tells him that that the release he is running is obsolete.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 ;-)

The %pre scriptlet does exactly that when installing the update.
