I would say we could declare 3.7.x as stable, given the amount of
backward incompatible changes since 3.6.x is limited.  Any thoughts on

If we want to keep 3.6.x, someone would need to invest on updating the
CI infrastructure (either porting the recent changes or switching a
simpler CI configuration for the old branch), which may require
significant effort.
