People here focus their energy on whatever they want.  It takes a small
number of people to keep a stable branch going (technically 3, but in
practice a slightly higher number).  Instead of the group choosing EOL or
only-security-fixes-of-some-minimal-severity or something else for a stable
branch based on what many people think is interesting to them for whatever

the community understands the state of the branch and that it is EOL-ed
when a sufficient number of people don't care.

[  ] I am willing to help address non-security issues in the 2.2.x branch.

PMC members:

[  ] I am willing to test and vote on proposed 2.2.x releases.

Maybe this comes up to the same answer, maybe not.

(This is not a call for vote; I'm suggesting a very different mindset
towards 2.2.x from "nice to focus energy on" and "time to EOL 2.2 and focus
