Since when did the 3.10 kernel get extended support?


I remember around September 2015 the 3.10 kernel was set to reach EOL somewhere around that month but when I check now it shows October 2017 as the next EOL. That is very interesting, how often does this happen?

As long as there is a competent maintainer willing to maintain a kernel then EOL can get pushed out.
