Hi All,

A reminder that there is no longer a default in practice of having short
term stable branches/releases for xx.02/05/08 DPDK master releases.

Note, this is relevant for xx.02/05/08 based short term (~3 month)
stables only. DPDK LTS based off xx.11 is *not* changing.

This is to allow more time for maintenance and validation of master and
LTS branches/releases as it seems to be where the community are most

There can still be short term stable branches/releases for individual
xx.02/05/08 releases if there is a particular need and a commitment from
community members to maintain/validate.

See http://doc.dpdk.org/guides/contributing/stable.html#stable-releases
for further details.
