Yup. They are going for 6 month releases and only issuing updates for
the current and previous release. Given that Fedora Legacy never really
took off, that's probably the only sensible decision for them.

The new Fedora install tools (pungi and the live cd creator) look like
they'd be useful for us, but hopefully they'll get ported to rhas/centos
at some point.

packages anyway:

vm3:iso-master/RPMS/honeywall 144: cat /etc/redhat-release
CentOS release 5 (Final)

vm3:iso-master/RPMS/honeywall 144: python ~/test.py|grep 'Not in'
