You are correct, in the past the RelInt team hasn't provided security releases. Instead, the credo was to go forward with the regular releases to also get the newest security fixes. This, however, was only easily possible because *the newer version did not introduce breaking changes with potentially big impact at the same time*.
I understand your mission of helping other teams increase their velocity. Maintaining multiple branches with fixes is certainly not fun, and I agree that it makes sense to try to avoid this if possible. I'm not sure I get the container networking 2.0 reference, though. Could you elaborate a bit more on this and how it is related to the current discussion?
Thanks and warm regards

The Release Integration team hasn't provided security releases in the past -- for neither cf-release nor cf-deployment -- and doing so would be burdensome and impede the evolution of cf-deployment. Therefore, we're not currently planning to start providing security patches. But we appreciate the feedback and will keep an eye on the problem.
