Dear Linux Users/...,

in the face of the facts that
* SL6 is already out of vendor support for multiple years
* there are no patches/upgrades available for this operating systems any more
to patch and keep it up to date
* we have to streamline and cleanup the Linux core infrastructure
* free resources to focus on up-to-date operating systems (RHEL8 / RHEL9)
we plan to and are going to retire our remaining SL6 provisioning and
management infrastructure by December 6th 2022.

By this time we will
* shutdown and retire the puppet server
* remove and archive all SL6 package repositories (on
<>, <>, <>)

By this time you will not be able to (all of this you shouldn't/cannot do
* install new SL6 systems
* centrally manage/update SL6 systems via Puppet
* push new packages for SL6
* access SL6 packages

If you still depend on these systems please let us know as soon as possible -
email to: linux AT <mailto:linux AT> !!!!
We can then discuss and for sure find a suitable solution for you.

Please forward this information to people that might not be part of this
mailing list!
