Not at all. I've always said that I would support -rt as long as the
base was supported by the official stable. 3.6 is not supported, and I
only supported it because it was the "latest" stable -rt. When 3.8-rt
comes out, it would also be the latest. But it too is not supported by
the official stable release. I'll only be doing that one until 3.10
becomes stable again. Luckily, 3.8 is being supported by Kamal, and
I'll probably just base my work off of his.

3.0-rt wont last long, as IIRC, Greg will be letting that go off to
ashes in a few months.

No, it will just enter the realm of the official stable releases.
