A few persons have asked about our plans to keep updates for LTS releases during the LTS support time, this is probably a good subject to write about.
A few months ago we have decided to limit updates for the "current" released version, starting the move as soon a release reaches the Release Candidate stage.
This decision was taken based on the visitors statistical analysis, the majority of users upgrade as soon as possible, this together with the fact that we have resources shortage, providing packages for several releases multiplies the package building a testing effort.
This is the current status, however there are some team members interested in keeping LTS packages, in case we can improve our reviewing/publishing process to a fully automated system we are probably going to change our policy dependent on the team members willingness to support the older releases.
