This sounds like a change of plan to me related to how we treated things
in the past. Was this discussed on list and I simply overlooked it?

Correct me if I'm wrong, but in the past we always accepted non-critical
bug reports against the previous version and also fixed them. We also
released patch-releases for the previous version even if there wasn't a
security related issue but rather the number of bugfixes summed up to a
point where it was reasonable to start rolling a patch release.

I'm not sure if going down the road where we only provide bugfixes for
the latest builds is something we'd do. At the hackathon this was
slightly touched too and was discussed that if we introduce shorter
release cycles, we also should introduce LTS versions.

Regards,
Stefan
