Subject Re: Make EOL branches to public?

For what it's worth, in HBase we've been approximating which Hadoop
lines are EOL by looking at release rates and specifically CVE
announcements that include an affected release line but do not include
a fix for that release line. Our current approximation[1] lists 2.6,
2.7, and 3.0 as dead. So that lines up well with your proposed list.
