Perhaps it might also be correct to not refer to the "rolling release" 
as a release at all, but simply the current development version.

I'm going to propose we just have LTS releases and a current development 
version (perhaps with snapshots).

The development version wouldn't be "unsupported", per se, as our policy 
for any supported version is to first fix it in development.
