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.
