ubuntu-support-status lists end-of-support packages (after EOL) as
Status in update-manager package in Ubuntu:
Status in update-manager source package in Precise:
Status in update-manager source package in Trusty:
Status in update-manager source package in Wily:
Status in update-manager source package in Xenial:
Status in update-manager source package in Yakkety:
1) Run ubuntu-support-status --show-unsupported and observe the count of
unsupported packages and the count of packages supported until some future date.
2) Travel to the future and overshoot by a month.
3) Run ubuntu-support-status --unsupported and observe the unsupported count
has not changed.
With the version of the package from -proposed the count in step 3
should be incremented by the quantity of packages supported until that
future date e.g. if you have 8 unsupported and 8 packages supported
until (1/2017) with the proposed version you should have 16
unsupported in (2/2017).
A return was missing say that packages were unsupported, so very very little.
Please see the screen dump below. It contains a section "Supported until
February 2015 (9m):", but it is April 2016, so the packages should NOT appear
in the --show-supported list, and it should NOT be introduced with
"Supported..." because the packages listed below that banner line are
