Subject Re: AOO "long-term support" ?
Date Sun, 26 Aug 2012 20:03:20 GMT
This is an excellent question. I can only say that other projects at Apache do this - on example
is Apache Tomcat. Tomcat currently supports three releases:

- 5.5.x which is EOL December of this year. [1]
- 6.0.x
- 7.0.x

Since Tomcat 5.5.x is a dependency of AOO 3.4.x we need to be aware of this in our dependency
