SIGs: Possibility to drop EOL content at 7.6.1810 release time

So here we go again. As one of the virtues of a programmer is laziness,
I'll just cut&paste the previous email with some modifications. You know
the drill.

RHEL 7.6 was released a few days ago and building CentOS 7.6.1810 has
just started. This would be an excellent time to remove any EOL software
you may have floating around on mirror.centos.org.

Upcoming changes to downloading AltArch .iso images

Hi, this notice is for those who employ some sort of an automation to
download AltArch (ie. aarch64, armhfp, i386, power9, ppc64, ppc64le)
CentOS 7 .iso/.raw.xz images from mirror.centos.org. Those using a
regular browser to download these images are not particularly affected,
and you can continue to the next message.

Previously, only main architecture .iso image downloads from
mirror.centos.org were redirected to isoredirect.centos.org, which then
displayed the user a list of nearby external mirrors.

SIGs: Possibility to drop EOL content at 6.10 release time

RHEL 6.10 was released today and building CentOS 6.10 has just started.
This would be an excellent time to remove any EOL software you may have
floating around on mirror.centos.org.

SIGs should explicitly state which content they want copied over from
6.9 to 6.10.

I'd imagine that for example openstack-juno could be dropped because it
went EOL in 2015-12-07 (so actually prior to CentOS 6.8's release..). Is
there some other content that could be dropped?

If SIGs want to transfer some of their packages from 6.9 to 6.10, please
let hughesjr know.

SIGs: Possibility to drop EOL content at 7.5 release time

Hi, this is not really my job, but I don't mind ruffling a few feathers
if I need to.

RHEL/CentOS 7.5 is probably around the corner. This would be an
excellent time to remove any EOL software you may have floating around
on mirror.centos.org. Unless otherwise specified, any SIG content under
7.4 will be copied over to 7,5.

I'd imagine that for example openstack-newton could be dropped because
it went EOL in 2017-10-25. Is there some other content that could be
dropped?

If SIGs want to drop something at 7.5 release time, please let hughesjr
know.
