End of life for NetBSD 5.x on November 9

In keeping with NetBSD's policy of supporting only the current (7.x) and next most recent (6.x) release majors, the release of NetBSD 7.0 marks the end of life for the 5.x branches. As in the past, a month of overlapping support is being provided in order to ease the migration to newer releases.
On November 9, the following branches will no longer be maintained:
  • netbsd-5-2
  • netbsd-5-1
  • netbsd-5
  • There will be no more pullups to the branches (even for security issues)
  • There will be no security advisories made for any of the 5.x releases
  • The existing 5.x releases on will be moved into /pub/NetBSD-archive/
We hope 7.0 serves you well!
