Re: [cross-project-issues-dev] Info Center for Neon.3

Iâm with Fred on this one.

Many (industrial) companies rely on older software simply because of the life time of their products - and not all are making use of LTS to manage this. In such environments, it is sometimes a great effort to move to newer releases, especially ones that occur yearlyâ The question is rather where do we draw the line between keeping everything and suggesting downloadable archives (or LTS) for older releases?
