CI3 lifespan - peterdenk - 11-22-2016

After CI4 has been released, for how long will CI3 get bug fixes and security updates?
Will there be any new features backported from CI4 to CI3?

No backport.

Two years LTS is probably not unreasonable -- we haven't formalized that as of yet, and won't have to until CI4 is much closer to ready.

Agreed, no plans to backport CI4 functionality. Some stuff can move from CI3 to CI4 without too much trouble, but going the other way would be problematic.
