I'm a little confused here. First you said that NLnet Labs will give a 2
year notice period when support for a particular product will end. I
haven't seen such an announcement about NSD 2. Please do point me to the
relevant announcement in case I missed it.

Additionally, the website also doesn't say anything about not supporting
NSD 2. Therefore, as an NSD 2 user, I have been under the impression all
this time that it is still supported, and am still waiting for the
announcement to say that support for it is ending.
