currently I am using a Samsung Galaxy S5 Plus (SM-G901F), LineageOS for microG 16 (Android 9).
I read about /e/ and think about buying a Galaxy S7 and try it with /e/. I find the project very interesting.
On the LineageOS homepage I saw that the ROM for the S7 is no longer maintained and the list of downloads for Samsung ends with Galaxy S5. This is very bad news.
AS LineageOS does not maintain Galaxy S7 and S9, does the /e/ team add security and stability patches?
If so, how long will the /e/ ROMs for S7 and S9 be maintained by /e/?
What are the plans for /e/ on the long run? Maintenance of phones by LineageOS is dependent on volunteers and can be dropped from one day to the other. This makes me wonder whether it is good to rely on /e/ when I decide to by a phone that is currently supported by /e/.
Thank you very much in advance for answering my questions and concerns.
