Fedora 10 Is - Supported - No More
Fedora 10 Is No More
All good things must come to an end, they say, and that is true of software as much as anything else. As new releases supplant the old, legacy versions receive a stay of execution to allow users the time to test and upgrade gracefully. When their time has come, however, they land in the coder's graveyard, which is exactly where the aging Fedora 10 found itself last week.
Fedora's legacy support policy is to support any given version until two new versions have been released, plus one month — the time-frame generally runs to thirteen months. Shortly thereafter, the old release is sent on its way: security and bug-fix patches are discontinued, and users are strongly urged to upgrade immediately. With the release of Fedora 12 in mid-November, the one-month countdown began for Fedora 10, and it received its final updates last week.
This announcement is a reminder that as of 2009-12-17, Fedora 10 has
reached its end of life for updates. As planned, last update pushes
to Fedora 10 were made in advance of this date, to accommodate the
move of some Fedora infrastructure.
Frields went on to note that the new legacy version, Fedora 11, will be supported until after Fedora 13 has been released.

Getting Started with DevOps - Including New Data on IT Performance from Puppet Labs 2015 State of DevOps Report

DevOps represents a profound change from the way most IT departments have traditionally worked: from siloed teams and high-anxiety releases to everyone collaborating on uneventful and more frequent releases of higher-quality code. It doesn't matter how large or small an organization is, or even whether it's historically slow moving or risk averse — there are ways to adopt DevOps sanely, and get measurable results in just weeks.
