And the way we are treating 1.8 (which recently reached the end of its security/corruption fixes support period) would be exactly the same as if we had designated 1.8 as an LTS release.

FWIW: Sounds all fine and in line with what was discussed/agreed upon
already. Personally I still have the feeling that moving on to the 6
month release cycle might turn out to be quite a release burdon/overhead
but that already was said that we eventually might have to adjust the
release procedure a bit and improve the automation (which already
improved for the 1.10 release).
