should explain a piece of it. In theory, we will EOL a 3.x
series 12 months after 3.x.0 was released. In practice, we
will not fix any bugs anymore and we don't commit to doing
security updates after those 12 months. But depending on our
work load and user demand, those security updates still
happen a lot longer. You just can't count on them anymore :-)
