I'm not trying to be dense, but what is that supposed to mean? I see this on http://www.freebsd.org/releases/7.0R/announce.html: "The FreeBSD Security Team currently plans to support FreeBSD 7.0 until February 28th, 2009." As far as I can tell, 7.1 hasn't even undergone RC2 build yet, much yet the actual -RELEASE build. So what am I supposed to do about this warning and the impending cessation of security support? Will the Security Team actually support 7.0R longer than originally expected? If so, can freebsd-update be made to understand that and stop issuing worrisome warnings? If the Security Team will stop supporting 7.0R, what _will_ they be supporting come Feb? Assuming 7.1R makes it out the door soon, will I really only have seven or so weeks to upgrade? The Security Team is apparently supporting 6.4R well into 2010; should I downgrade to keep receiving security updates?
