Dear opensuse-security-announce subscribers and openSUSE users,

SUSE Security announces that openSUSE 10.2 will be discontinued soon.
Having provided security-relevant fixes for more than two years, we will
stop releasing updates after November 30th 2008.

As a consequence, the openSUSE 10.2 distribution directory on our
ftp server will be moved from /pub/suse/*/10.2/ to the
/pub/suse/discontinued/ directory tree structure to free space on our
mirror sites. The 10.2 directory in the update tree /pub/suse/update/10.2
will follow, as soon as all updates have been published.

Er... this is no longer true, there is nothing under the /pub/suse/discontinued/ structure, just a note that versions till 7.1 have been remoed to save 30 gigs of space.

But there is nothing there, ¡not even 10.1!

However, 10.0 isos are in "/pub/suse/i386/10.0/iso", and some packages I think are under "/pub/suse/i386/10.0/SUSE-Linux10.0-GM-Extra/suse".

There is also a partial "/pub/suse/install/10.1" and an emtpy "/pub/suse/install/10.2/", with a note that it has been erased too:

] All openSUSE 10.2 packages from the media as well
] as those that did not make it due to space reasons to them,
] are available via the mirrors of
] For details read:
] about the "Internet Installation Repository".

So, where are you keeping your own SUSE history, if even 10.2 is not there, before the date of end of november you mentioned?
