The Apache Camel community is excited to have such a great response and effort already put in by the Outreachy applicants. We are grateful to all that contributed with code, ideas, helping others and being a part of our community. We received similar inquiries from several applicants, asking help with the timeline for the final application, intern selection criteria and similar. To help answer this and to be transparent to all involved, so each individual can reflect and make informed decisions, here are some of our thoughts.
The Apache Camel project is moving to release schedule with Long Term Support (LTS) and non-LTS releases. The plan is to have 2 yearly LTS releases and then non-LTS releases in between. This allows the Camel project to innovate and move much faster in non-LTS releases. And as well to offer production stable branches (LTS) where end users can stay on for a longer period of time and get CVEs and important/critical bug fixes only.
