  Nope. That’s not a 3 year release, that’s a 2 year release
with 3 year support. You don’t have a _new_ 3 year warranteed
support release after the 3 years of stable/oldstable, you get a
1 year old, 2 remaining years of warranteed support release.

year 0: stable_0 is released
year 2: stable+1 is released
year 3: support for stable_0=oldstable ends
        stable+1 is 1 year old
year 4: stable+2 is released
year 5: support for stable+1=oldstable ends
  So oldstable support endings occur every 2 years.
