[gentoo-releng] Need for kernel-2.4.xx in 2007.1 profile?

-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
With the 2007.1 profile, we would like to drop support for the
kernel-2.4.xx series. As far as we can tell, we do not think it is
required for anything anymore. Please note that already with the
2007.0 profile, there is no profile for the 2.4 kernel, so if you want
it now, you must be using 2006.1/2.4 (or, I suppose, 2006.0/2.4).
This does not mean the the sparc-sources-2.4.34 ebuild would instantly
disappear, but it does mean that we would not work to keep
sparc-sources current. Note that this is effectively the current
status anyway; nothing has changed with sparc-sources since last
January, so effectively all kernel-2.4 work has stopped.
If this causes problems, please let us know now.
