The future of /e/

I’m really liking /e/ and everything it has to offer.
Only one thing is on my mind at the moment regarding /e/:
Is the future of /e/ development always going to be based on LineageOS development? What if LineageOS drops support for a device? Does that mean that /e/ will drop support for a device and it will never update that device in the future to newer android versions?
Is there an /e/ future where LineageOS is not relevant anymore?

The future is nice :slight_smile:

As you can see in forum and announcements, e is also developing for non Lineage devices. And e will deliver security updates for a lot of devices where lineage has dropped the support.

But no one knows which device will get the longest support.

Please check the FAQ for the answer.

In terms of future updates, is it a safe bet to buy the Galaxy S9 considering the e foundation itself sells that phone?

What is safe … on this rapidly changing world?

Enough capital would be for /e/ perhaps a possibility to “buy” software developers for a longer period of time to further develop and maintain the service.

Let’s think back to the heyday of Nokia. Once a market leader and today …

Safe in this rapidly changing world would be ~3 years. It used to be 2, now it’s 3.
So, I guess /e/ supporting a phone for ~3 years after it begins supporting I think would be good.
