Well, I still do, nominally, but RHEL-3 is in maintenance mode (meaning
no more scheduled updates).  It would take a fairly serious bug to get
Red Hat's attention to the point that they'd want to turn the package.
If something like that came up, very possibly we'd want to put out a
fix too.  What I'm thinking is more along the lines of not bothering
with back-patching non-catastrophic bugs, and not automatically
including 7.3 in the set of branches we make back-branch releases for.
