I would like to ask if there is any plan to provide qgis2.18 package
in osgeo4w framework after qgis3.4 become LTR. In Feb 22 [1], if I
understand well become:

* qgis-ltr -> 3.4
* qgis -> 3.6

The question is whether there is any plan to provide after this change
also qgis2.18 package, eg. `qgis2`. In this case I could prepare
special grass package compatible with qgis2, eg. grass-qgis2.

The is also question which GRASS version will be used for qgis2.18.28
packaging. There is GRASS 7.4.4, on Feb 17 has been released GRASS
7.6.0. The package of 7.6.0 is currently in Expr area (test). QGIS
2.18 seems to be prepared for GRASS 7.6.0 [2], I am not sure if
tested. I would leave decision on QGIS packager whether to use GRASS
7.4.4 or GRASS 7.6.0. Please just inform me when I can move 7.6.0
version from `test` to `curr`.

Thanks, Ma
