As per the discussion on the weekly conference call today, this is
notice (a proposal?) that the NFS-Ganesha 2.5 branch will reach
End-Of-Life on 2018-12-31 and no further maintenance activities by the
project will occur; e.g. no patches will be merged, or back-ported from
later branches, no tags will be made in the git repo, no community
packages will be built, etc.
This is independent of any downstream maintenance that vendors may need
to do for their products. They may have to carry Downstream-Only patches
for the remaining life of their products.
People who want to use supported software should plan to update to the
NFS-Ganesha-2.6 stable release, or the NFS-Ganesha-2.7 active
If you have any questions please post them to the devel mailing list at
