I’m with John wrt. the discussions on LTS and the 7.8.4 release being orthogonal.

Especially if 7.8 does not have submodules and if this is a pain, there’s also no reason to backport our approach to LTS into 7.8. In other words, 7.10 could also be the first LTS version.

Speaking for myself, I don't think the question of doing a 7.8.4 release at all needs to be entangled with the LTS issue.

Emphatically yes.  Lack of submodules on the 7.8 branch makes working with
it /very/ unpleasant.
