I’m debating between tracking the
latest/stable channel verses a specific LTS channel to maximize stability in a production environment. The concern I have about using an LTS channel, e.g.
5.0/stable, is that bugfixes that I end up needing may not get backported to the LTS channel. is there a policy or guidelines for which types of bugfixes will get backported? Or, can users open an issue on GitHub if a particular issue is affecting them and that could prompt considering a bugfix for backporting?
Related to this, I have some systems on
latest/stable now. I know that in general downgrading is not supported, but is it supported to downgrade to the latest LTS, e.g.
5.0/stable? Or am I stuck waiting to switch to the LTS track until the next LTS (6.0) comes out?
