[cf-dev] BOSH projects adopting distributed committer model

Hi BOSH Team,

Can you clarify what the support plan is for the Ubuntu Xenial stemcell? You've stated here that Xenial support runs out in April 2021 but on bosh.io, it states that support will continue till April 2023 (See https://bosh.io/docs/ubuntu-os/#ubuntu-xenial). Which date is correct?

Thanks for pointing this out, I've clarified the docs. Canonical (the company behind Ubuntu) stops free Xenial support on April 2021. There is an option for people to purchase Ubuntu's ESM support and create their own stemcells which will be patched until April 2023 but that isn't something that will be released on bosh.io. We are restarting work on Bionic and you can follow that work by searching our public backlog for stories with the "bionic" tag. https://www.pivotaltracker.com/n/projects/956238

Maya,

Thank you for clarifying the stemcell update roadmap. It is very exciting to hear that work on a Bionic stemcell is resuming! We've been trying to decide when to start adopting cf-for-k8s and a Bionic stemcell would give us more wiggle room to plan our transition while cf-for-k8s matures.
