Typically I get a flurry of patches shortly after

a .1 release out in a timely manner, and then it seems patches for
stable become few and far between.  In the 0.14 and 0.15 series, not
even enough to warrant a .2 release.  Perhaps this is due to lack fixed
issues, or lack of effort to submit to stable.

release as needed.

I would've thought that the usb-ccid CVE alone warrants a 0.15.2 of qemu
and qemu-kvm. I am surprised nothing has happened there yet...


We don't have a clear EOL schedule for stable releases. Historically, stable releases only lasted until the next release cycle so in by that logic, 0.15 is EOL.

Obviously, part of creating a regular cadence for stable releases and getting more people involved is to formalize this all quite a bit more.
