Well, yes, we certainly should. Just because a branch is no longer officially 
supported doesn't mean we want to discourage people from running the latest

Well, sure, but there's a world of difference from upgrading from 7.4.2 to 
7.4.27 and from upgrading from 7.4.2 to 8.4.2.

Well, I'd prefer to have the old versions, but I can handle the status quo. As 
long nobody pulls versions before they are really dead again. :)
