It's a two-way street though. As a community we agreed to extend
stable support timelines on the promise that the people consuming
those would step up to keep them testable. If key projects are
having trouble testing stable/mitaka now and the people relying on
that aren't helping fix the situation, then it's time to again
reevaluate our earlier choices for support duration.
