Yup. Great point. From upstream, I think a 6month overlap in releases
might be enuf.
So 3.2 would be supported for a total of 12 months from the
initial .0 release. 6 months during thr 3.3 development obviously
and then for 6 months following the 3.3 release. So at post a
6 month overlap on support between production releases.
