Over time people should become aware that odd-numbered minor releases are
always development releases and are not to be relied upon. Sure, you can't
say it works for 2.4.3 through 2.6.9 but you can say
It works for 2.4.x for x >= 3 and for 2.6.x for x <= 9.
And during the initial three years of turmoil after a change to such a dual
branch structure is made you'd probably be wise to add
No support for any development branch releases (e.g. 2.N.x, where N is
odd) is implied.
