Hello all.
Thanks Jo for the update.

One thing that was discussed here a while ago and unless I am mistaken 
never came to a conclusion was the possibility of extending the life of 
17.01.x a little while due to many cases of 18.06 and its significant 
improvements not being able to run on so many very good or usable 
equipment at all.

I'm not sure what's the best way of finishing that discussion but 
regardless the final result of it I personally think in this case (which 
is slightly different from a normal end-of-life of any version), is 
worth at least discussing the pros and cons. One thing to highlight was 
that the last thing I remember was proposed was not for 17.01.x to keep 
receiving full support for this extra time but only major and security 

Let me know your views.

Best regards
