== Description ==
<!-- Put a description of the task here. -->
Each release of Fedora is maintained as laid out in the [[Fedora_Release_Life_Cycle#Maintenance_Schedule | maintenance schedule]].  At the conclusion of the maintenance period, a Fedora release enters ''end of life'' status. This procedure describes the tasks necessary to move a release to that status.
