This is probably my final reminder on this before April 3rd 2017. As listed at https://access.redhat.com/support/policy/updates/errata and https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Red_Hat_Enterprise_Linux#Product_life_cycle Red Hat Enterprise Linux will be exiting “Production Phase 3”, and CentOS will be archiving off old EL-5 releases.
At that point, all remaining EPEL-5 packages will be archived to /pub/archive/epel/5 for systems to get data from. No new updates or packages will be done after that.
