Re: [DOCS] should we have a separate page that clearly defines what a minor release is and why it's a good idea to keep up with them?

Yeah, I figured that was the criteria. So, is it not reasonable to say
that the releases listed on the front page under "Latest Releases" are

EoL"? Perhaps instead of "Latest Releases" or "Actively Maintained
Releases" something like "Current Releases" says that better?
