Release strategy

In accordance with the yearly support KEP, the Kubernetes Community will support active patch release series for a period of roughly fourteen (14) months. The first twelve months of this timeframe will be considered the standard period. Towards the end of the twelve month, the following will happen: * Release Managers will cut a release * The patch release series will enter maintenance mode During the two-month maintenance mode period, Release Managers may cut additional maintenance releases to resolve: * CVEs (under the advisement of the Security Response Committee) * dependency issues (including base image updates) * critical core component issues At the end of the two-month maintenance mode period, the patch release series will be considered EOL (end of life) and cherry picks to the associated branch are to be closed soon afterwards. Note that the 28th of the month was chosen for maintenance mode and EOL target dates for simplicity (every month has it)
