Description Mark J. Cox 2010-04-27 19:00:39 UTC
In accordance with the Red Hat Enterprise Linux Errata Support Policy, the
regular 7 year life-cycle of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 will end on October
31, 2010.

After this date, Red Hat will discontinue the regular subscription services
for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3. Therefore, new bug fix, enhancement, and
security errata updates, as well as technical support services will no
longer be available for the following products:

* Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS 3
* Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES 3
* Red Hat Enterprise Linux WS 3
* Red Hat Enterprise Linux Extras 3
* Red Hat Desktop 3
* Red Hat Global File System 3
* Red Hat Cluster Suite 3

Customers still running production workloads on Red Hat Enterprise
Linux 3 are advised to begin planning the upgrade to Red Hat Enterprise
Linux 5. Active subscribers of Red Hat Enterprise Linux already have access
to all currently maintained versions of Red Hat Enterprise Linux, as part
of their subscription without additional fees.

For customers who are unable to migrate off Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3
before its end-of-life date, Red Hat may offer a limited, optional
extension program. For more information, contact your Red Hat sales
representative or channel partner.

Details of the Red Hat Enterprise Linux life-cycle can be found on the Red
Hat website: http://www.redhat.com/security/updates/errata/
