> We should document our compatibility and release policies in one place so that people
have the correct expectations. This is generally important, but more so now that we are releasing
1.0.0.
> I extracted the following topics from the mailing list thread as the ones that should
be documented as a minimum: 
> *Code stability*
> * Explanation of stability annotations and their implications
> * Explanation of what public apis are
> * *Discussion point: * Do we want to keep the _unstable_ annotation or is _evolving_
sufficient going forward?
> *Support duration*
> * How long are versions supported?
> * How far are bugfixes backported?
> * How far are security fixes backported?
> * How long are protocol versions supported by subsequent code versions?
> * How long are older clients supported?
> * How long are older brokers supported?
> I will create an initial pull request to add a section to the documentation as basis
for further discussion.
