when will be the last sync before kinetic goes EOL?
I expect there to be two more syncs for Kinetic. One in ~2 weeks and one at the end of April.
As we’re approaching the EOL. I highly recommend that any releases be targeted for the next sync. And save the last sync for regression patches only as that will be the last expected opportunity to make a release and after the final sync any regression fixes will require the user to compile from source.
