It was discussed in various places by now, along with the switch of the
main development branch to three per year we also want to extend the
lifetime of the LTS releases.

19.11.x is the first to pass the two years and we want to extend it to
three as it still has active users e.g. via Ubuntu 20.04 LTS but also
potentially many other appliances and/or vendors.

I think it should be clear that 19.11 year 3 is a trial and extending 
other LTSs >2 years will be evaluated at the end of this. Just so not to 
set expectation that this will automatically apply for other LTS 
releases too.

Hi Christian,

Zhaoyan and the Intel System Test team agree to test the additional year 3 releases.

@Mcnamara, John - Intel usually submits two test results.
One like http://mails.dpdk.org/archives/stable/2021-August/033130.html
And one separately for "Intel(R) Testing with Open vSwitch" like
http://mails.dpdk.org/archives/stable/2021-June/031702.html
Does the above commitment include both?

I forgot, I also give my own ok in regard to Canonical testing of
further 19.11 releases.

Looking at the usual major test coverage providers we still need an answer from:
- RedHat (like http://mails.dpdk.org/archives/stable/2021-September/033218.html)
  @Pei Zhang ?
- Nvidia (like http://mails.dpdk.org/archives/stable/2021-August/033131.html)
  @Ali Alnubani ?

Hello Christian,

Ack. We are OK to test further 19.11 releases in the next year.
