I've got release duty today. I'm positive I wont start until after 2 PM US Pacific, but if you want to steer things, pile on.

I'm also seeing 2.8.1rc2, 2.9.2rc0 and 2.10.1rc1 - are we letting old rot or should these be un-neglected?
2.7.2 appears o be the last true stable release.

@enough-analyst-54434: the changes in 2.10.x at least are internal-only, and just intended to unblock future releases if needed

OK. And I can assume ditto for 2.8.x and 2.9.x?

you did the last pick to 2.9.x, and yea: it appears to be a similiar internal-only-to-unblock-future-actual-releases

Ok, this feels totally untenable, but I'll roll with it.

…ah, i’m missing that 2.10 and 2.9 both had rcs before those internal-only changes. so yea, we should likely release those. sorry, missed that bit.
@enough-analyst-54434: but yea: if you do the dev release, i’ll do branch releases. thanks again.

Yeah, my algorithm was just any branch w/o stable should be tended to. I stopped at 2.7.x since it was 1st that met the criteria. I dare not look earlier.

yea. exactly how far back to go has always been a question, and we should likely try to clear it up a bit. my line currently is likely 2.9.x, but not for any particular reason.

It looks like 2.8.1rc2 is the only release we've abandonded not on your list and not counting 1.30.5rc1. It would be good not to be abandoning any.
