That was my thoughts on what we should support, not an authoritative one.
I didn't put SLES or RHEL because I am not sure of the license implications:
* Should the OSes in the top tier be available to anyone to fix?
* If only a few people have access to them, wouldn't releases depend on
these people? (in which case, they could be in the second tier)
* Is there any Apache restriction on that matter?
