I asked upstream about this  and they should stop supporting Tomcat 7
when the development of Tomcat 10 starts. Tomcat major versions follow
the Java EE specs which are released every 3 or 4 years. Java EE 7 has
been released in 2013, so we could expect Tomcat 7 to be supported for
~6 years from now.
