From what I understand, 10.2 is currently not being built on Ubuntu
12.04, as after 10.2.2 it required lots of effort to get it working on
the platform, too much for a distro about to reach end of life.
Currently, it's still built on Centos5, but I understand that this also
The current deprecation dates are listed at:
What about simplifying these decisions with a guideline, such as that
major new releases will not be built on distros that reach end-of-life
within, say, 6 months of the expected stable release date. So if a new
release is expected to be stable in December (understandably always an
estimate), we won't bother to build it on distros that EOL before June.
Currently, that would mean not building 10.2 on CentOS 5, which I think
would be welcomed.
