Was there a conclusion out of the recent discussion on EOL policy? The 
consensus seemed to be something like: "We will maintain releases to the 
best of our ability for at least 2 years plus 1 release cycle. After 
that, support may be dropped at any time when maintenance becomes 
difficult."

Have we actually officially stopped supporting the 7.2 series?

All this needs some announcement from the core trsam, IMNSHO - there has 
been some confusion over it (e.g. I saw someone recently saying we had 
stopped supporting the 7.3 series, which the above would seem to 
indicate is not true).

cheers
