I'm working on an errata for this.
I unfortunately don't have a ship date as that depends on when the QA folk sign
off on the errata package
Is there still the desire within Red Hat to provide updates for 6.2? It's not
mentioned any more, and I've got a feeling it's a bit long in the tooth for TPTB
out there .. especially with RHL80 loomingon the horizon!
Give it to me straight, doc - is my 6.2 box dying of old age, and is it but a
matter of time before an OpenSSL exploit tips my hand and I put it out to pasture?
Well 6.2 is supported,.. just from a devleoper point of view there's also
7.(0,1,2,3), HA1.0 and AS2.1 to maintain,.. it's a nightmarish load of work so
we're sort of snowed under. But 6.2 IS supported,.. but only till next March I
That said, you probably should jump to 7.3 (it's basically 7.2 + bugfixes)
