Thanks for the explanation, DES.

But do you find a bit strange with the current support schedule?

Thanks and regards,

This is an unfortunate feature of the current release schedule, where
every odd-numbered minor release (plus the final release from each major
branch, even if it's not odd-numbered) is designated as an extended
support release.  If a normal release is published less than a year
after the preceding extended release, it will expire before its

9.3-RELEASE, which is due very shortly, will be supported until the end
of 2016.
