Subject Re: [DISCUSS] Support For LTS Version Of Geode
Date Tue, 01 Oct 2019 00:09:28 GMT
Put simply, from my perspective, I would like to see LTS versions of Apache
Geode align with the *Spring Data* (*Release Trains*) support for Apache
Geode.

For example:

SDG Lovelace/2.1 is based on Apache Geode 1.6.x.
SDG Moore/2.2 is based on Apache Geode 1.9.x.

Therefore, both Apache Geode 1.6 and 1.9 would be LTS versions, with patch
releases.

The upcoming SD Neuman/2.3 (now in development given Moore has just went GA
(i.e. 2.2.0.RELEASE) as of today), is currently based on 1.10, but is
likely to move Apache Geode versions (e.g. 1.11, 1.12, or even 1.13) before
SD Neuman reaches RC1.

SD has longer lifecycles between release trains (1 to 1.5 years per SD
Release Train) than Apache Geode's support cycle, on a particular
major.minor version (e.g. 1.9), which always puts us in a
precarious position.
