Just curious... CentOS4 lifetime tracks RHEL4 somewhat... Since RedHat
has announced LTS (Long Term Support) for RHEL4, are there plans to
extend the CentOS 4 support window?

    No, BECAUSE ... Red Hat does not publicly release the sources for their
    Long Term Support packages.

    They are not releasing the Long Term packages for EL3 now, they won't be
    doing it for EL4 either.

    Now, if they DID release them, then CentOS would produce them.

    Ahhh.. thanks for the info...
    It's just as well in any case. Gives me some more leverage when I
    push to upgrade the 4.x systems...

    Has anyone played with SDFS on CentOS? Is it usable?

    I haven't tried SDFS, but I've been using LessFS for our fileserver
    for few months now.
    Beside dedup, it also gives file compression.
    So far so good.

    I'll take a look at SDFS.

    How do you do backup and archiving?

    It's a VM. I back it up to encrypted external HDD then off to offsite location.
