[opensuse-kernel] keeping the 10.3 kotd?

Hi,

openSUSE 10.3 is EOL and so is the SL103_BRANCH in kernel git. I see
there is one more patch that was committed after the last kernel update:

commit 874207faf01e7231972a2ba30b9c7a6e7722f48a
Author: Suresh Jayaraman <sjayaraman@xxxxxxx>
Date: Tue Aug 25 19:40:20 2009 +0530

- patches.fixes/cifs-fix-overflow-in-cifs_readdir: cifs: Increase
size of tmp_buf in cifs_readdir to avoid potential overflows
(bnc#492282,CVE-2009-1633).

Is there interest in keeping the 10.3 kotd for a while? Deleting it
would save some 3GB on ftp.suse.com, so unless someone really wants the
packages, I'll nuke them:

du -m SL103_BRANCH/ | sort -n
53 SL103_BRANCH/src
658 SL103_BRANCH/ppc
857 SL103_BRANCH/x86_64
1479 SL103_BRANCH/i586
3046 SL103_BRANCH/

Alternatively, I can delete the debuginfos and keep the runtime packages
for some time:

du -m --exclude='*-debuginfo*' SL103_BRANCH/ | sort -n
53 SL103_BRANCH/src
98 SL103_BRANCH/ppc
125 SL103_BRANCH/x86_64
170 SL103_BRANCH/i586
445 SL103_BRANCH/

Of course, if someone wants to provide fixes for the SL103_BRANCH, I'll
happily merge and build them, but I don't think that many people are
interested in the 2.6.22 kernel ;).

Michal
