Default How long will the long-lived branch be supported for?

Hi,

I currently package and maintain nvidia driver releases for Red Hat Enterprise Linux for the elrepo.org repository.

I recently noticed your long-lived branch currently supporting the 275.xx series drivers.

Please could you advise roughly how long you intend to support each long-lived branch, and how many supported long-lived branches there are likely to be at any one time. Where will End of Life notifications be issued for long-lived branches (previously it's been obvious as each new series release deprecates the previous release, but that will no longer be the case). Obviously such a concept has merit within the Enterprise arena so we are keen to support these releases for our users.

Thanks for your continued support of the Linux community.

Phil
