I’m also on board with releasing more often. What I want to make sure of though, is that we are mindful of the majority of implementations that cannot move this quickly. I have been disappointed by a bit by what has seemed like a blind adherence to our “support only the last 3 releases” policy, regardless of how quickly these releases have come in succession, how stable they are, how many backwards-incompatibilities they introduce, and how widely they are adopted.
I think (or maybe this is just my narrow, PIH-centric projection) that we can consider 1.6, 1.9, 1.11 to be LTS-style releases, given that they stood the test of time, with broad module support and extensive implementation usage. I think we should aim to more officially recognize releases like this, and to commit to supporting them for longer, when possible.
Can we accelerate a more official adoption of an LTS policy?
