Hey folks,

For the feed back I think the consensus is go with the proprosed schedule,
but commit to not breaking any APIs in 3.0.

2016-09/10 : 2.1
  what we have on master is probably good enough for a release already but
  - traitlets
  - the gui overhaul
  if we miss them, tag in late september anyway

2017-07 : 2.2 LTS
 - last feature release with 2.7 support
 - critical bug fixes on mpl 2.2.x branch until 2020
 - solicit a dedicated py2.7 maintainer

2018-07 : 3.0
  - only support py3.4+
  - do not break back-compatible API

There has been no protest to publishing this on the pyhon3 statement web
page (and this is already public) so I will ask them to include us in the
