Either I'm missing your point, or you're missing my point. There are
five release branches now which are "not officially supported", but I have
yet to see any circumstance where they have, in fact, not been
supported. If those branches were not being supported because people were
too busy to support them, I'd understand perfectly; but as far as I can
see, those branches *are* being supported.
