Interestingly, if one looks at the chart in the above referenced
message, one can see that at this time there is NO release of
FreeBSD which will be supported with security patches, etc. for
more than 13 months.
As both an administrator and a system builder who cannot afford the
labor and downtime inherent in frequent operating system upgrades,
it is important to me to be able to build systems whose operating
system version will be supported for at least 18 months (and,
preferably, two years). Would it be possible to extend support for
FreeBSD 8.0-RELEASE until mid-2011 or 2012 -- or, if this is not
practical, quickly release a FreeBSD 8.1 which will be supported
for at least that long?
