Issue #9217 has been updated by samkottler (Sam Kottler).


I think it makes sense to do a 12 month maintenance cycle so people can start upgrading. Although 2.0.0 is nearly a drop-in replacement, it's not that easy for larger apps. 12 months feels like a reasonable amount of time for people to upgrade. Once the first cycle is over then Vit or someone else can take over security backporting based on the conversation we had yesterday.
