Some initial notes for [wiki:Self:Extras/FedoraLegacy Fedora Legacy] :

  • Beginnings of scope definition - [3]
  • SethVidal post to fedora-test [4] .
  • David J. Bianco's post to Fedora-Legacy - [5]
  • Possibly legacy supported for every N releases (cf. [wiki:Self:Extras/EveryOtherRelease EveryOtherRelease] ).
  • Support popular Red Hat Linux releases, such as RHL 7.3 and RHL 9.
  • 1-2-3-out support model. 1-2-3 will have Legacy Key signed and QA'd. "out" releases will still accept contributions for backports, but no longer Key signed, nor QA'd as heavily.
  • Separate Key to Fedora.
  • Identified components qualified for backporting efforts.
  • Assigned "Contacts" for each identified component to backport.
  • Individual contact's discretion as to when backporting for older release is discontinued.
  • Try to use as much of the existing infrastructure as possible, QA/Testing/etc...
  • Make use of Red Hat's bugzilla, to allow security groups
