The above dates are estimates and subject to change. 
¹  A maintenance release will only occur if sufficient bug reports warrant it.


CHANGEOVER POLICY

Q. If a new release of an Open Group Test Suite comes out, do I have to stop using the old release immediately?

A. No, there is a six month overlap period during which applications for product certification will be accepted, based on either the new test suite release or the previous "still valid" release. 
However, The Open Group Quality Manager reserves the right on grounds of quality to insist on the use of the new release (or a patch to the previous release).  See http://www.opengroup.org/openbrand/PR/summary.html#4.3
