Hello Ops folks,

This morning at the Sydney Summit we had a very well attended and very
productive session about how to go about keeping a selection of past
releases available and maintained for a longer period of time (LTS).

There was agreement in the room that this could be accomplished by
moving the responsibility for those releases from the Stable Branch
team down to those who are already creating and testing patches for
old releases: The distros, deployers, and operators.

The concept, in general, is to create a new set of cores from these
groups, and use 3rd party CI to validate patches. There are lots of
details to be worked out yet, but our amazing UC (User Committee) will
be begin working out the details.

Please take a look at the Etherpad from the session if you'd like to
see the details. More importantly, if you would like to contribute to
this effort, please add your name to the list starting on line 133.


Thanks to everyone who participated!
