How long will this package continue to receive security updates?

Asked by Mohamed Hafez

Can we count on it getting security patches until the end of Oracle 'Extended Support' for it in Dec 2018, at least for trusty, or is there some other date? Thanks!:)

Trusty is LTS in April 2019 so, once the SQL version goes EOL then the package will be updated to a supported version. You could report a bug so that the devs are aware that something so key will die before the release. SQL upgrades are not to be taken lightly in my (very limited) SQL experience.

Can you help with this problem?
