Subject Re: EOL

After reviewing the documentation, it appears the document focuses more on
release schedule and bug fixes for the 3 most recent major release
versions. It is not really clear when the support for specific versions end
and when they become deprecated.

We need an official deprecation and EOL policy that is explicit in terms of
how many versions back we are going to support.

We can take a look at these documents from other projects for inspiration
to come up with a clearer guidance to the community

https://kubernetes.io/docs/setup/release/version-skew-policy/#supported-versions

https://access.redhat.com/articles/1299013#OpenJDK_Life_Cycle

We also have to be careful not to alarm existing users of the 1.x series

Those are my thoughts
