 +
 +Jan Rękorajski [[http://​lists.pld-linux.org/​mailman/​pipermail/​pld-devel-en/​2016-April/​024842.html|writes]]:​
 +With the addition of new longterm kernel (4.4) we would have six (6) package lines to keep up. Because of this I'm removing 3.10 and 3.14 from Th to keep the number maintainable. There will be no more releases for those lines and I will move existing packages to th-archive within a month.
