Re: Origin EOL policy and what does trigger a new minor release

Currently the process is:

1. critical security vulnerabilities are back ported
2. anyone is free to backport a change that is justifiable if you can get review and meet the bar for review
3. anyone who helps backport a change is expected to help keep CI jobs working if you see something is broken - right now only a small pool of people are doing that so I've been asking folks to chip in and keep the jobs up to date if you're going to submit PRs
4. all changes should be in master first (we won't backport an issue that hasn't merged to upstream kube or to origin master)

I cut releases on critical issues and otherwise the tag is just rolling (if you merge to release-3.7 the change will show up).

I'm sending out this email to understand what is the Origin EOL policy and also understand / start a conversation around what is considered critical bug which does trigger a new Origin minor release.

The rational started from [1] where after i migrated all my internal prod environments from 1.5.1 to 3.7.0 but due to bug [2] was fixed in [3] i had to move to 3.7.2 (picked latest minor due to CVEs too).

Now after going to all that long/ painful (due to extensive maintenance window and few disruptions at apps level) upgrade process, i then got hit by [1] and as it stands today don't have many options on the table except forking and trying to back port the patch myself.

It will be naive to think that Origin will get all/ majority of the OCP bug fixes however i do expect to have a gate or a transparent/known (public) process which defines what critical bug is (same in how you might have for OCP) such that a new Origin can be triggered.
