I see there is an April release of Hardknott.  Is that the last
official
Hardknott release from the Yocto Project?
There's going to be a 3.3.6 as well and that is going to be the last.
From this status email:

* YP 3.3.6 build date 2022/03/28

Key Status/Updates:

  * We are now at feature freeze for 3.5, our next LTS release
  * YP 3.1.14 and YP 3.2.4 were released
  * YP 3.3.5 is in QA
  * After a last minute push, the base set of inclusive language
    changes have merged. There is a conversion script which can be
run
    to convert layers. Not all changes needed have been written yet
    but enough are present to allow the conversion process to
start.
  * There were also changes to convert LICENSE fields to use SPDX
    identifiers and there is a second conversion script for this
that
    can be used.
  * We have updated the core layer series name to kirkstone and
other
    layers will now need to update to confirm compatibility with
    kirkstone.
  * There is a patchset to update python’s build processes to use
the
    upstream preferred wheel approach which would aid support of
    python over the next few years. It is late in the cycle for
this
    kind of change but we will give this series a few days of
testing
    to make a decision and welcome user feedback either way on
these
    changes.
  * As such, the M3 release build will likely not happen until
early
    next week.
  * The autobuilder infrastructure is planned to be offline 26-28th
    February for a data center move. Public services like the
website,
    wiki and git servers will remain live but the git backend
    (push.yoctoproject.org) will be offline, as will the downloads
and
    sstate services and the autobuilder/NAS.
  * Capacity has been improved on the sstate server which was
causing
    intermittent timeout issues for downloads.
  * Intermittent issues continue to be at record high levels and
help
    is very much welcome in trying to resolve them. You can see the
    list of failures we’re continuing to see by searching for the
    “AB-INT” tag in bugzilla:
   
https://bugzilla.yoctoproject.org/buglist.cgi?quicksearch=AB-INT
   
<https://bugzilla.yoctoproject.org/buglist.cgi?quicksearch=AB-INT>

In particular, we’re struggling to understand the intermittent
network
issue with external hosts we’re seeing very occasionally.

Ways to contribute:

  * There are bugs identified as possible for newcomers to the
    project: https://wiki.yoctoproject.org/wiki/Newcomers
    <https://wiki.yoctoproject.org/wiki/Newcomers>
  * There are bugs that are currently unassigned for YP 3.5. See:
   
https://wiki.yoctoproject.org/wiki/Bug_Triage#Medium.2B_3.5_Unassigned_Enhancements.2FBugs
   
<https://wiki.yoctoproject.org/wiki/Bug_Triage#Medium.2B_3.5_Unassi
gned_Enhancements.2FBugs>
  * We’d welcome new maintainers for recipes in OE-Core. Please see
    the list at:
   
http://git.yoctoproject.org/cgit.cgi/poky/tree/meta/conf/distro/include/maintainers.inc
   
<http://git.yoctoproject.org/cgit.cgi/poky/tree/meta/conf/distro/in
clude/maintainers.inc>
    and discuss with the existing maintainer, or ask on the OE-Core
    mailing list. We will likely move a chunk of these to
“Unassigned”
    soon to help facilitate this.
