I would definitely not be comfortable retiring branch-1 any time this
CY, given the unknown state of both the 2.0 release process and how
long that branch has been without a release. Three years from 1.0.0
puts us at February 2018. The 0.98 branch had the benefit of nearly 2
years overlap with branch-1 releases; should branch-1 have a similar
window with branch-2?
