I think you are using "last release" in a different way. "the last
release" is always the most release release. Right now 6.3 will have
support for longer than 6.4 will, which is the nature of the problem I
raised. If you always supported the most recent release for 24 months
then we wouldn't have any problem.
I mean seriously, if you were to say "We will support 6.4 for 24
months *unless* we find it necessary to release 6.5 then I'd be
totally happy. But that's not what is being said.
