 Yes, but most of users doesn't understand it properly and they were just
 confused with it. And it seems that such users use jessie as docker base
 image, so it was not seen from them.

 "surprises" from "LTS" users are not good signal. Such users doesn't
 like changes ;)

 - Can we prodives oldstable-updates repo until its LTS EOL?
   Probably it's right thing to remove it at that time, but seems
   that the loss is larger than its benefit.

 - Removing oldstable-backports is good instead, if it can be
   provided with several termination announces from channels
   like mailing list, news, SNS, etc. How about the participation
   from publicity team? (CCed)

 We can do it better next time :)
