Subject Re: [DISCUSS] EOL 4.16 and 4.x?
Date Tue, 18 May 2021 21:29:49 GMT
+1 for EOL'ing 4.x branches.

As Josh and I, share the feedback from the same set of users,
it would still be a good idea to hear from others but as it's been already
been 12 days since your first mail out, just a notice can be given for
72hrs(?)
before dropping the next 4.x versions from JIRA and cleaning branches in
case any volunteer comes up to maintain these branches.
