Following the upstream release cycle, Scientific Linux 5 will reach End of Life March 31 2017.

After this date no additional updates will be published for Scientific Linux 5. This means no security updates for SL5 will be published after March 31 2017.

After March 31 2017:
- The installation trees will be moved into the obsolete directory.
- Kickstart and yum operations against the old repository locations will no longer work.

The files themselves will remain available under the 'obsolete' directory.

Users of Scientific Linux 5 should evaluate options for migrating to an actively maintained operating system.

Scientific Linux 6 and Scientific Linux 7 are actively maintained at this time.
