Thanks Stewart.

That is what I was looking for.

I found the following comments at
(It does seem like we have been supplying maintenance releases for two
releases back, not just one. So maybe this wiki needs to be updated)

What is the release cycle of the Yocto Project?

Each release of the Yocto Project is subject to its own release schedule
according to the community-maintained Project Planning Guide
<>. It is generally
expected that a new version of the Yocto Project will be released every
six months.

What is the overall support plan for the Yocto Project?

Security patches and critical bug fixes are supplied one release back. No
toolchain or kernel changes are allowed for these updates. Support for
longer periods of time can be supplied by commercial OSVs.

Hi Armin - let me do some research on this, just wanted to let you
know that I had seen it. I'm not sure we have a formal statement

Can someone point to a 'life cycle statement' for Yocto versions, one
discusses limited bug fixing peroid and ultimate EOL of a version. I am
having trouble find it.
