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.

This is also the only thing that I'm aware of.

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?

There is a wiki page,, to
collect mirror URLs which still offer the old releases. Maybe this

(It doesn't list 10.2 sources yet.)
