 The OmniOS CE release announcement here on the mailing list covered

an extended period of at least security updates for that LTS release?

messages describe as 'OmniOS r151022 LTS' (eg in the announcement of

 Thanks in advance, and my apologies if I've overlooked a discussion
of this on the mailing list (or a mention of this on the OmniOS CE
