Working for an enterprise, we’ve found ourselves way out of date. We’re on version 2.12, where 4.12 is current LTS. We’re working away to get up to date, so we need to go fast for a bit, until we reach currently supported LTS, from where we can sustain a slower pace of upgrades. It would be great to ensure we never get behind again, in an automated way.
I’m interested to know if there’s any automated ways of helping our teams know when LTS support for our current codebase is ending in say 6 months. Perhaps by flagging up a message during builds, failing builds or even just alerting a chat channel.
I see npm has support for deprecating versions of pacakges, to indicate they are out of support, but I’m not sure what the community/core team view is on using that. It doesn’t appear to be used currently.
Any existing solutions out there?
