​I tend to agree with the rest of the choir here in saying we shouldn't
make it easier for people to use EOL releases. It will likely add
unnecessary burdens onto us and our systems when people come to ask about
EOL Fedora releases in Docker. Not to mention, we should be encouraging
people to move up, not stay put.

Honestly, I think if people need a platform that lasts a long time, they
should be looking at CentOS with EPEL, SCLs, and/or other repos depending
on what they need.​
