I noticed that CentOS usually does not copy the EOL-announcement RHSA or
provide the updated package associated with it.
This would be CESA-2011:0219 with upstream details at
As everbody seemed to be concerned about the communication done for
CentOS 3 End of Life I guess it is probably a good idea to:
- duplicate the EOL-Notice RHSA as a CESA
- rebuild centos-release to contain an EOL-notice
- discuss wether or not to add an EOL-notice to /etc/issue

== End Of Life Notice ==
According to our support-policy the 7-year lifecycle of CentOS 4 will
end on February 29, 2012.
After this date no security-updates or bugfixes will be released.
If you still run production systems on CentOS 4 you're strongly advised
to plan an upgrade to CentOS 5 or CentOS 6.
