Fedora [mess] r us

"When Fedora Legacy is working well, it is a highly useful service. With a simple tweak to a yum configuration file, it is possible to keep an older system current with almost no effort.Unfortunately, the last update to Fedora Core 1 came out on December 3, 2004. Any Fedora Core 1 systems which rely upon Fedora Legacy for updates are currently vulnerable to holes in the kernel, xpdf, vim, KDE, PHP, sudo, etc. The process, it would seem, has come to a complete stop for over a month. We attempted to ask (via the posted contact address) what was going on, but got no response."
