The biggest thing that will change is that all our CI systems will stop testing 2.7, and there's a good chance we'll lock (or delete?) the 2.7 branch from our repo.
A final tag of the branch will be made and then the branch will be deleted (it's how we handle all EOL versions).
Will there be a time delay between the final tagging and the deletion so any who would like the repo in its final state can clone it at that point?
If I've understood "tag" correctly, the commits should all remain in the repository for all time, so you should indeed be able to view it as of EOL. You can "git checkout v2.7.18" (or whatever the number is) after cloning the repository.
