So, here's a question.... With F21 released December 9, but F23
scheduled for October*, if we go with the normal one month overlap,
that means the total F21 livespan will be only 11 months. We often tell
people that the "n+1 + 1 month" scheme means the normal supported time
is about 13 months. This next time around, do we want to say "and
'about' sometimes means 11!", or do we instead want to EOL in December
(or even January)?
As is often the case, I can see benefits either way.
Stick with n+1+1 month. Extending a little used release for another 2
months just seems like a lot of work for little gain. Those that were
going to upgrade likely already have, those that aren't likely won't
care either way.
To put it another way, we didn't drop F20 support at 13 months when
the F21 cycle ran long. It's been "supported" for well over that at
this point. I suggest we stick with the formula and stop trying to
make things more complicated.
