 } Apologies for using this form, but the general feedback CGI was

 } recommended I use this form via Twitter, or the security contacts.
 } Since this isn't a security issue, I am opting for this.
 } The issue: Tenable is trying to determine the End-Of-Life policy
 } for NetBSD, or a list of dates when versions are/will become EOL.
 } Up to version 4.0 can be found via netbsd-announce, but since
 } then it doesn't appear there have been subsequent ones. Version
 } 4.0.1 was released 2008-10-14 which was some time ago, leading
 } us to believe it may be EOL.
 } Can you point us to a policy or source of information? Our
 } customers rely on our vulnerability scanner to notify them of
 } EOL operating systems that are not receiving security patches,
 } and we would like to have accurate checks for all versions of
 } NetBSD.
      I don't have a link handy for you, but the general rule is
 that the current release train and the prior release train are
 supported.  Since the current release train is 6.x, this means that
 4.<anything> is EOL.
