Hi,

I assume that the kernel 4.14 support will be extended till 2014, Greg
said some time ago that he will maintain one kernel per year for the
next 5 years, mostly for Android.

Switching now to kernel 4.19 would shift our timeline for the next
release by multiple months in addition. I would prefer if we branch off
the release after our meeting in Hamburg next month and use kernel 4.14.

For the release after that I am not sure if we should take 4.19 or even
5.3 or whatever will be the next LTS kernel. It will probably be done
somewhere in the first half of 2020, so we should have about 6 months to
stabilize 5.3
