First of all, it is weird that the *ROS2* TSC discusses about the
*ROS1* EOL. ROS1 is not in the scope of the ROS2 TSC charter, as far
as I read it.

Second, there are enterprises promoting products and services to
customers based on ROS1. It might be preferable if the TSC could avoid
talking in such frivolous manner about the EOL of ROS1, in official
communications. Part of promoting the ROS ecosystem as industry-ready
is a professional handling of communication.
