Default FreeBSD supported branches update

From http://lists.freebsd.org/pipermail/f...ch/001365.html

Hello Everyone,

The branches supported by the FreeBSD Security Officer have been updated to
reflect the EoL (end-of-life) of FreeBSD 7.1.  The new list of supported
branches is below and at < http://security.freebsd.org/ >.

Users of FreeBSD 7.1 are advised to upgrade promptly to a newer release (most
likely the recently announced FreeBSD 7.4) either by downloading an updated
source tree and building updates manually, or (for i386 and amd64 systems)
using the FreeBSD Update utility as described in the relevant release

The current supported branches and expected EoL dates are:

  |  Branch   |  Release   |  Type  |   Release date  |  Estimated EoL  |
  |RELENG_7   |n/a         |n/a     |n/a              |February 28, 2013|
  |RELENG_7_3 |7.3-RELEASE |Extended|March 23, 2010   |March 31, 2012   |
  |RELENG_7_4 |7.4-RELEASE |Extended|February 24, 2011|February 28, 2013|
  |RELENG_8   |n/a         |n/a     |n/a              |last release + 2y|
  |RELENG_8_1 |8.1-RELEASE |Extended|July 23, 2010    |July 31, 2012    |
  |RELENG_8_2 |8.2-RELEASE |Normal  |February 24, 2011|February 29, 2012|
You don't need to be a genius to debug a pf.conf firewall ruleset, you just need the guts to run tcpdump
