Retiring legacy "Patches for RedHat Enterprise Linux" site content

We are looking to retire the following legacy sites in March 2012:
Before anyone starts to panic, keep in mind that we replaced these sites with the Patches for RHEL 3|4|5 sites in 2009. The Patches for RHEL sites were developed to make our patch content easier to deploy by supporting RPM dependency resolution. By retiring the legacy Red Hat sites, we will be able to clear up confusion around the two different sets of content, reduce the maintenance burden on our engineering team and in general, make all of our lives a little easier. There is no loss of functionality through these changes. We are simply taking away the old and leaving you with newer, better content. In fact, you are probably already using the Patches for RHEL sites and have forgotten all about the older, legacy sites.
If however, you are concerned about the change, please let us know and we will work with you to resolve any issues.
One last note, if there is any remaining confusion about the differences between the various Red Hat patch sites, here's a very handy knowledge base article on the topic.
