Reminder: PSA: Enterprise Linux 5 End of Production on 2017-03-31 and EPEL.

So in less than 12 months (2017-03-31), Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 will be leaving end of production level 3 . At that time EPEL support will be ending for EL-5 and all packages will be moved to the archives section of the fedoraproject download servers.

If you are relying on (CentOS|ScientificLinux|Oracle|Red Hat) Enterprise Linux 5 for your business needs, you should look at moving the to either a newer version of Enterprise Linux or at the extended support program that Red Hat offers as listed in the above article.

I will be publishing my next PSA on this in 6 months.
