After a pretty extensive discussion and review of support call volumes, we're looking at a decision to extend the end-of-support date for Notes/Domino 6.5 from the currently announced April, 2009, to April, 2010.  Extended support would continue to be available after the end-of-support.

The current trajectory shows that something like 90% of support calls would be Notes 7, 8, or 8.5 related by April, 2009, but IBM doesn't want to put customers in a forced migration position earlier than necessary.  IBM only announces end-of-support dates for April or our choice was stick with April 2009, move to September 2009, or move to April 2010.

Once this is official, I'll post another entry and/or update this one, but wanted to provide the news and get feedback sooner rather than later.
