This is a good question and I'm also curious to learn the
answer. More generally, going from release to EOL in just
three months seems absolutely crazy to me, particularly as
this project is owned by Red Hat who purport to maintain
enterprise-grade support lifetimes. We should be talking
about years, not months. As things stand today, I can't even
deploy a new version before it's already EOL.
