So you don't get fixes if upstream abandons a package. This is a
different definition of "supported" than Ubuntu has. Thanks for clearing

It was a general question, as you said flatly that there is 5 years
support at least for THE DISTRO, not for its server packages.
I gave an upstream-unsupported apache version as another, but that would
endanger your opinion and so you ignore it.
