This is not a bug, apparently this is how they want it (tfox).
The plan is that the package list moves to fedora legacy when a new
release is made.

Probably a bigger problem than version specific pages is that the
fedora website is neglected as soon as a release is made. i.e. the
current package list (as you say) is for FC2, and the schedule doesn't
mention that FC3 has been released, or that FC4's schedule is under

A better bug would be that there appears to be no coordination between
Fedora releases and the Fedora website, and the version control for
the Fedora website is lacking. I don't remember the author, but a
prominent "web person" claims that no URL should ever expire, and in
this case I think he is right.

Example layout:

fedora.redhat.com/package-list - current package list
fedora.redhat.com/fc1/package-list - fc1 package list
fedora.redhat.com/fc2/package-list - fc2 package list
fedora.redhat.com/fc3/package-list - fc3 package list

The Bug Activity page said I removed jha@redhat.com as QAContact.
Not true.

Will try to re-add. Nope - not allowed.

This is a bug, because it prevents a sysadmin checking whether a particular
distro contains a given package, and what version of that package it contains.

Not having this is one of Fedora's weakpoints.
Fedora needs a packages.debian.org equivalent.

Why was this closed as not a bug?
