End-of-lifetime (as in : end of support/updates/patches, etc).
Most non-commercial distro's have a lifetime of about 18 months to
2 years per release, what happens AFTER that is very distro-specific.

For instance: EOL of openSUSE 11.3 will be end of this month, so I
already made a copy of the base repositories, because they will
disapear from the mirrors at that time.

Thanks.
