Usually there is one more regular maintenance release of the existing
maintenance branches within a few months of the creation of the next
version (releases before then are at the discretion of the release
manager, and security releases continue for much longer).

So take the planned 2.7 and 3.2 release dates and add a couple of months
to each one to get the likely release dates for the 2.6.x and 3.1.x
maintenance releases.
