Good stuff! Two comments, easy changes. Very nice document to have!

Does this cover only the deprecation of an entire release series, or does it cover the case where we want to un-recommend older releases within a series?

Do we want to accelerate this schedule if there's a security issue?

Replying to nickm:

Does this cover only the deprecation of an entire release series, or does it cover the case where we want to un-recommend older releases within a series?

Afaict, an entire series. This is really about the EOL of a major number version (ex: 0.3.2.x)

Do we want to accelerate this schedule if there's a security issue?

I don't think accelerating the EOL of a series because of a security issue is in scope of this document. That should probably be detailed in our "security policy" document *if* we judge that it could arise one day that we fast track EOL.

Okay. So in that case, let's have document describe itself as only applying to the planned deprecation of an entire release series.

Keywords: postfreeze-ok added

Mark some tickets as postfreeze-ok, to indicate that I think they are okay to accept in 0.4.0 post-freeze. Does not indicate that they are all necessary to do postfreeze.

Priority: MediumLow

Bug triage of 0.4.0 tickets. These are now in the "CAN" section. Lower priority than "040-must".
