Just to be explicit, if we are sticking with the 6 month statement, this 
would mean we would still accept backports to Newton and Security Fixes 
to Mitaka until 4/7/17 .  This would also mean we would need to be 
careful to ensure that any backports to Newton also make it into Ocata 
to avoid holes in fix coverage.
