Re: Preparing to announce Squeeze LTS end-of-life
But I believe that
Ben sort of officially declared end of support for the squeeze kernel
"Debian 6.0 Long Term Support has now ended, and the 'linux-2.6' source
package will no longer be updated. This bug is being closed on the
assumption that it does not affect the kernel versions in newer Debian
I've started to draft the announce to be consistent with this. But I
think there is a problem with the imprecise date (February 2016) on the
wiki. Some of us, and more important, some users may thought it was at
the end of the month.
I'd definitely agree with this. I, as a user, expected a formal notice
of end of support, rather than a quiet whimper into support end. Finding
out LTS ended officially 3 days ago after-the-fact is.. unpleasant.
The wiki still states "Debian 6 “Squeeze” until February 2016", which
means I expected a fixed date to be announced soon, rather than just
hearing "eh, done now" sentiments on a mailing list.
