[Haskell-cafe] Should I report a bug on GHC 7.10.3, or is it past it's end-of-life?

For what it’s worth, I think it’s a good idea to file some bugs for recent
old versions, even with the understanding that they won’t be fixed. It
gives someone who has yet to update (for whatever reason) some chance of
finding a definitive source that the bug doesn’t manifest in a newer
version, giving them a concrete case to upgrade.

To answer the original question, 7.10 is done; there will not be a
7.10.4. If you find bugs in 7.10 and can't test them in 8.0, you can
still file them. Reporting bugs in pre-7.10 versions that can't be
reproduced in more recent versions is not likely to be useful.
