I'm not at all opposed to RE@ and security@ making hard decisions and doing whatever is needed to best further the project's goals (so please don't read this as flame bait). But I have to confirm what I just read:

5.4 is EOL before 5.5 is released, and even before 4.11 and 5.3 are EOL? Or is it really the case that the EOL table should list /2007/ for 5.4 (same day as RELENG_5)?

If 2006 is accurate, this is registering on me as a significant POLA violation. Very hard to believe this is accurate. If accurate, what list/channel/forum should I have been paying more attention to?

PS - many thanks to all RE, security and all other contributors. Testing of 6.1 is indicating all is well for our purposes and hardware. So if 5.4 really is EOL, we'll move forward, just a little quicker than previously planned.
