What additional work are you referring to specifically?
The security and release teams are no longer involved in the LTS part of
That said if other teams believe that they have extra-work to support
the LTS initiative, I'm entirely open to the idea of funding persons
outside of the LTS team provided that they work benefit the LTS project
and provided that they follow the same rules of transparency and
accountability. With possibly extra-caution like a check with
other members on their team that none opposes to the paid work and
that nobody else would want to do the same work in their free time.
