Channeling Nick, I'd say that LTS support should come from commercial third parties, such as OS vendors. I agree with Antoine: it's not something we want to impose on the core devs. How much fun is 2.7 maintenance?
Agreed. When lack of reviews is an issue, imposing additional "not fun" work on core devs isn't sustainable. As someone who does (non-Python) software support for my day job, dealing with legacy issues in Python doesn't feel like a hobby, it feels like work (and unlike the rest of my day, I'm not getting paid for it).
