I think the BOD should officially set some dates and post them on the wiki.
Something like this

I believe EOL is fine. 
The image just needs to be corrected by user "uroveits". 
I would simply remove that EOL thing until the BOD has some official dates.

In any case I think he/she just copied the dates from the release plan...
Version 3.5.7 was officially announced on October 18th so it could not be
EOL even before it was announced...

Maybe he/she meant End of Line or End of Development for the branch??? But
doesn't apply (yet) to the 3.6 branch...
