Can you clarify this please? The nova team is definitely backporting
fixes to pike, ocata and newton. Newton isn't EOL yet *because* nova has
held it up backporting fixes that we think are important enough to get
in there before we EOL the branch.
If you're talking about LTS, that's a different story, but please don't
say upstream OpenStack doesn't care about backporting fixes. That might
be a per-project statement, but in general it's untrue.
