Summary0003965: Ubuntu 16.04 LTS support is missing a deprecation notice
Quote from Blzut3
Given that we only really support Ubuntu 18.04+ and similar era distributions at this point (per policy of following Canonical's free support period)

End of Standard Support for 16.04 LTS was April 2021.

After I wrote this patch, I found out Canonical extended its extended security support until April 2026. [^]
The standard support period has not been extended. The quote in the OP is from before the announcement by Canonical.

I think this just adds noise to the changelog. Are we gonna mention all distros and their versions from now on? Ubuntu 16.04 ended, and Ubuntu 20.04 is the Ubuntu now (soon to be Ubuntu 22.04). By default all software should not support Ubuntu 16 anymore.

I've mainly done this due to the Dockerfile distributed with Doomseeker 1.3.2, but I don't oppose resolving this one as "won't fix" or "no change required" if you want.

Seeing 0003964 got merged, alternatively I could change the changelog entry from "Windows XP" to "Windows XP and Ubuntu 16.04 LTS".

Zalewa is right in that documenting drops of Ubuntu versions is pretty much just noise. The deb packages are built according to the DRD Team repo policy (which is to use the oldest supported LTS), so unsupported versions being dropped is implied by policy. What could make sense to document is bump of minimum supported Qt and compiler versions. The place to do this is COMPILE.txt although it probably wouldn't hurt to have a changelog entry as well. If we're recommending building with Qt 5.9+ (or experimentally Qt 6.2+), glibc 2.27+, and GCC 7+ then by definition full support of any distro based on older dependencies is at discretion.

Sounds good, although putting up deprecation notices for any of those dependencies is out of scope for this issue.
