It failed because of excess bureaucracy (they didn't even trust Bugzilla's

on the procedures, and QA requirements were also unrealistic given the

Patrice Dumas's proposal failed because he wasn't provided with the required
infrastructure (and he was unable to come up with it himself, which I can't
blame him for).

We'd just need some minimal infrastructure effort, one person willing to do
the pushes (like you're doing for the supported releases) and everything
else would be "as is", if somebody wants something fixed, they'll have to
push the fix, if nobody cares, it won't be fixed. It isn't supported after
all. And no QA, if it breaks, you get to keep the pieces. Again, it's
unsupported, that means what it means. I still think it's better than not
getting any security fixes at all.
