Hello Kodiak!

At this time, I don't think we have plans to do an LTS release as we
don't have the resources to dedicate to it. I am also not an authority
on what we will or won't do, so I'm really just speaking from my
perspective. However, I personally very much agree that it would be a
fine goal for the future for all the reasons you stated.

On the other hand, Pulp is now part of the Fedora project starting with
Fedora 24. As a result, the versions of Pulp that ship with Fedora 24
will receive support in Fedora itself during the year and one month that
each Fedora release itself is supported. You might consider using it
that way. I also hope that we will get Pulp included in EPEL 8 whenever
that comes out, but we can't guarantee that at this point.
