I've noticed a couple of these: For example,

EOL Notice: Precise Pangolin (12.04) will be End of Life starting April 28, 2017

Non-EOL Notice: Quantal (12.10) remains supported through April 2014

Since statements of fact are unlikely to result in much discussion and the EOL dates are published upon release at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Releases are notifications like this necessary?

    A number of meta posts don't need any answer. An unanswered meta post is, depending on the contents of the post, no big deal.
