Default FreeBSD 7.2-RELEASE EoL delayed to end of June 2010

From http://lists.freebsd.org/pipermail/f...ch/005564.html

Hello Everyone,

In keeping with the FreeBSD Security Team policy concerning the EoL dates for
"Normal" support releases,
"a minimum of 12 months after the release, and for sufficient additional
time (if needed) to ensure that there is a newer release for at least 3
months before the older Normal release expires"
the EoL date for FreeBSD 7.2-RELEASE has been adjusted from the end of May 2010
to the end of June 2010.

Due to an unfortunate limitation in the freebsd-update(8) utility, it will warn
about the upcoming EoL based on the original end-of-May date until the next time
a security update is pushed out for 7.2-RELEASE.

Please note that this is only a one month reprieve; we expect 7.3-RELEASE to be
announced later this month, and users of 7.2-RELEASE are advised to utilize the
months of April, May, and June to ensure that their systems are upgraded before
7.2-RELEASE ceases to be supported.

Once they are released, 7.3-RELEASE and 8.1-RELEASE will both receive "Extended"
(i.e., 24 month) support from the FreeBSD Security Team.
