Hi,

With todays release of "pam_ldap" we discontinue the security
support for SUSE Linux 9.2.

For the discontinuation schedule of our SUSE Linux products,
please have a look at http://en.opensuse.org/SUSE_Linux_Lifetime
The next discontinued SUSE Linux version will be SUSE Linux 9.3,
around end of April 2007.

SUSE Linux 9.2 was released in begin of October 2004.
It was the first release featuring Delta RPMs, making downloads of
patches even smaller than with the Patch RPMs we used before.

The difference in "Recommended" patches is mostly due to the previous
SUSE Linux 9.1 being the base of SLES 9 and also the first release with
Linux 2.6 kernel and so getting more bugfixes.

Patches (active patches) (difference to SL 9.1):
                Total: 581 (278 active) (-58)
                Security: 487 (204 active) (-5)
                Recommended: 74 (57 active) (-45)
                Optional: 20 (17 active) (-8)

Split by type of patch (compared with 9.1 for the ones with large
numbers):
     17 kernel (-3)
     16 clamav (+3)
     14 apache2-mod_php4 (-3)
     13 MozillaFirefox (+2)
     11 opera ( 0)
     10 ethereal ( 0)
      9 phpMyAdmin ( 0)
      8 squid (-2)
      7 apache2 (-2)
      7 squirrelmail (+1)
