Thanks for documenting this!

In practical terms, we have now promised to release 1.11.0 around October, so
we should start thinking of cutting a 1.11.x stabilization branch around late
August / early September.

The new documentation states that 1.9 would be an LTS release, to be supported
until 1.14; I had assumed 1.10 would be an LTS release (supported until 1.14 is
released + overlap period) but 1.9 would be a "normal" release, to be supported
until 1.11 is released. That would be consistent both with the guarantees made
when 1.9 was released and with the new "1.x is LTS if (x%4 == 2)" practice.

Cheers,

Daniel
