First, let me thank everyone who has provided support for the project
over the years. We never expected it to grow as quickly or aggressively
as it did. In an effort to continue to provide the highest quality
packages to our community we are making some changes.

Effective immediately, the RPM project will no longer generate RPMs for
software that is considered legacy by their respective communities or

What does this mean to you the user?

It means that we will no longer build packages for operating systems
such as Fedora 10. Nor would we build PostgreSQL 7.3 packages for CentOS
5. As both Fedora 10 and PostgreSQL 7.3 are considered unsupported.

We will continue to provide the SRPM of the work that we do on supported
operating systems and therefore it is possible for the user themselves
to modify the spec file to enable a build on a legacy system.
