Hi all

The question about LTRs came up a few times over the past year(s)
but noone seems to have started a proper discussion about LTRs so this
mail is intended to change that.

Do people want LTRs ?
As far as i can tell, yes

Should we have LTRs ?

What do we need to have LTRs ?
Each LTR needs a maintainer, no maintainer, no LTR

What does such a maintainer need to do ?

keep track of by keeping track of by subscribing to gitlog and
filtering notes about changes to said page)
Backport security fixes
Make new point releases

Comments and Maintainers welcome!
