How do you suggest to handle the case where the duration of security
updates changes past release?



Thank you for your question.

I am Not completely sure I understood your question but here is my answer to
what I undestood. Hope is the right interpretation and a good answer for your

Well, if we know before hand the duration of security updates we can stick to
above formula YY.MM-mm.

If we are going to make an extended security updates for a past release
(i.e.11.1 Evergreen) and make a downloadable iso we should add something like
this: YY.MM.xTmm . (i.e. 11.1.xTviii) Where "xT" would mean "extended support"
and romanized lower case ( August=viii) would be the month the extended
security updates will end. We would have all important information available
at the sight.
