Reminder: July 2017 End of Support for Branches 14.12 and 15.12

Sharan-F
Hi All

I know that the July time limit is still a couple of months away but I
wanted to make sure this is raised early as it is published on our
current website downloads page: <http://ofbiz.apache.org/download.html>

  * *Special Notice Regarding Branches 14.12 and 15.12:* The branches
    14.12 and 15.12 contain the complete codebase including the
    specialpurpose components and will remain as unreleased branches so
    will be accessible for developers and service providers to support
    their client base
  * The project has changed the build system from Apache Ant to Gradle,
    but this change will not affect branches 14.12 or 15.12; the new
    build system is available since the 16.11.* series.
  * Branches 14.12 and 15.12 will be supported*until July 2017 *and
    during this period bug fixes will be backported to them

Do we have any outstanding issues, bug fixes, etc that need to be
backported to any of these branches?

Thanks
Sharan

Hi Sharan,

I'm not aware of any issues. Normally, they are backported together with
the fix, but it could be that a committer decided not to do it because
of complexity.

That raises an idea: we maybe should look for a way to mark issues for
backports which could not be done immediately so that we don't forget them.

Regards,

Michael

Using a label? (because it's the easier way) But do we really need that?
