>From an ubuntu perspective, ubuntu is going to support stein on 18.04 LTS
(3.6) and 19.04 (3.7) only. With that said does upstream still want to
ensure stein runs on 16.04 if ubuntu itself has no plans to?

I was assuming the desire to keep 3.5 stein support was for other distros
that plan to support stein with 3.5.
