Since ports revision 374417, the FreeBSD portstree defaults to CentOS 6.6 for
purposes of Linux emulation.

Fedora 10 has served well in the last five years, but long since gone End of
Life upstream. The CentOS 6 series will be supported until November 2020, this
should give us enough time to keep its point releases up to date.

I've added an entry to today's UPDATING that documents how to change to CentOS
6.6 if you have not done that yet, as well as how to keep using Fedora 10.

Please report any issues encountered in the process via Bugzilla and to the
emulation@ mailing list.

Best regards,
