Moving EPEL-4 and EPEL-5 to archives

Today we say goodbye to the last parts of EPEL-5 (and also EPEL-4). The top level files in /pub/epel/4 and /pub/epel/5 were moved to /pub/archive/epel so that people who are still needing packages can get them from the archives. People using yum should not see any change in updates because mirrormanager had the changes to point to archives a couple of days previously.

For any kickstarts or scripts that used the main download servers all that needs to be done is change:


http://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/5/

to

http://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/archive/epel/5/

and you can have your kickstart scripts grab the epel rpm from

http://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/archive/epel/epel-release-latest-5.noarch.rpm

Thanks again to everyone who has helped with EPEL-5 over the years. It was a good crazy ride.
