3.6 discontinued?

Upstream released 3.6.18. Are there any plans to continue the 3.6 line
of GNU Icecat? In the moment there is no vulnerability-free version of
Icecat available, since there is no 5.0 yet and 3.6.16 is the last
available version of the 3.6 line.

Since Upstream now follows the rapid release model with a new version
every three months it will be clearly harder to stay up-to-date for
Icecat. So it might be better to support the 3.6 line as long as it
exists - I don't know how long that might be, but there are discussions
and a IRC meeting at 2011-06-28 @ 10:00 am PDT) to discuss EOL of 3.6,

If they drop 3.6 there will be no "LTS" version which means that users
will be forced to upgrade the browser to a new version if they want to
stay secure.
