I'm pretty sure there are, after all, I was one of them untill less
than 3 months ago. But while I'm not really a fan of burning the
bridges as soon as a distribution goes out of support (e.g. the bot
nudging people to drop build targets from their projects - in
opt-out manner to boot), I always understood that when I decide to
keep using no longer supported distribution version, I'm on my


Yet people holding into old releases often have no option. For
instance, I keep an old laptop on 13.1 because it is 32 bit. It has an
USB bug, and obviously I don't expect a patch; I don't even ask for
it, and besides, I made my own workaround ;-)

so the "argument for" and "expectation" of support for out-of-maintenance
systems should be considered "nil" and any more conversation along this
line should cease and the fact there are unresolved and/or not
investigated bugs that do not exist in later maintained releases is
immaterial. if you choose to continue running out-of-maintenance
releases, you are doing "your own thing".

Stretching this a little more....the oldest bug in my list is confirmed against
openSUSE 11.1, but still unsolved. Last change: 22 Apr 2010.

I feel these old bugs (= before last Evergreen 13.1) should be closed
