John and FESCo/QA, when this has been decided can we please write that
down properly somewhere in the wiki and make that a policy until there
is a strong reasons to rediscuss the topic?

My memory might fool me, but I think this discussion came up multiple
times already in the past each time we retired a release. I tend to say
that's wasted energy (¹) as long as there is no good reason to rediscuss.


(¹) -- I think that is a general problem we more and more face; a issue
get discussed and a solution is found to solve the issue now; with a bit
of luck it gets documented properly in the wiki, but often it gets
buried in meeting logs and forgotten. Some months later the same thing
pops up again and gets discussed endlessly again....
