which should expire after the next major release. Right now, it's schedule in early April, but I don't think we're that certain of Mozilla's calendar and our own. So maybe we should bump those by a month or two just to be on the safe side?

I appreciate that you have such failure modes in mind.

I propose we come back to it in a couple months. By then, we'll have more info about:

  • Whether we've already bumped these snapshots, e.g. to get a Buster point release or a kernel upgrade.
  • Whether we'll put out a major release earlier than April (e.g. with overlayfs).
