that's the shot, roll your own rpm's or go one better

To me the most important point in this discussion is that you have the
freedom to upgrade your servers yourself if you want.  No one is forcing
you to get your updates from Red Hat.  If you want to continue using say
Red Hat Linux 7.1 after December 2003 and don't want to migrate or upgrade
or move to another distribution then you can always roll your own security
updates.  Or find someone you trust to do it for you and pay them.  Or set
up your own service where you provide 7.1 security updates for anyone who
pays you an annual fee.

We've always had our security updates end of life policy public. Back in
December 2002 we altered the policy to make it dependant on dates rather
than based on when we come out with newer releases.  We got a fair bit of
press coverage (and slashdot) about it. 

Thanks, Mark
