Fedora 11 is still supported. Why is this closed when no update for F11 was released?
It has a low security impact, but if it's needed I can backport it also into F-11.
I wasn't aware that we didn't do updates for the oldest supported release if the issue was low impact. Is that a policy or guideline set somewhere? If it is, then don't worry about it, but it if isn't then we should probably do it. We've often done low impact updates for the oldest supported release.
Thanks for any clarification you can provide.
If you put it this way. I'll backport it.
cronie-1.3-4.fc11 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 11.
Thank you, Marcela. I'll have to hunt on the Fedora wiki to see if there are any policies regarding what gets pushed and where. Maybe it's worth discussing whether low impact issues should be done for the N-1 release. Regardless, thank you for this.
cronie-1.3-4.fc11 has been pushed to the Fedora 11 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
