Hi Dims,

I can’t help but ask - how old is too old? By what measure are we saying
something is too old?

I think we need to be careful with what we do here and ensure that the
Distribution partners we have are on board with the criteria and whether
They’re ready to include more recent package versions in their extra
Archives (eg: RDO / UCA).

As developers we want the most recent things because reasons… but
Distributions and Operators are then stuck with raised complexity in
their release and quality management processes.
