I think it would be a very good idea for Red Hat to continue (at the
minimum) security errata maintenance for Red Hat Linux 9 until Fedora
Core 2 has been out for, say, 30 days or so.
This will permit people who did not upgrade to FC1 to upgrade directly
from RHL9 to FC2 and maintain security errata support, without having
to first upgrade to FC1.
Fedora Core 2 is not scheduled to be released until 2004-05-10 (and
that date may slip).
