Correct. The Fedora Infrastructure team needs to balance the risk of
MitM offline dictionary attacks with the need for RHEL6 client access.
IMHO, there should already be a plan to sunset RHEL6 instances. But I
can't judge this based upon Fedora's internal needs.
Right, RHEL6 is still a supported client for us, so we are currently
providing access so they can work.
As soon as something happens to let us drop that direct access we
likely will do so. ;)
