End of life for CentOS 6
We should stop building packages for CentOS 6 soon because its End-of-Life date is November 30, 2020 (https://wiki.centos.org/Download).
CentOS 6 only has gcc v4.4, but many packages now require
-std=c++11, which requires gcc 4.7+, to build:
- libsassc: gitlab!27267 (merged)
- charlock_holmes: gitaly!1694 (closed)
- google-protobuf: gitlab!27741 (merged)
I don't know how many customers still use CentOS 6, but I imagine there are a handful of them out there.
