Yes. I asked that question on the list. I don't remember exactly (quick 
archives search could not get me that email) but he said something like 
it will be supported as long as Postgresql 8.3 is supported (which is 
about 6-12 months).  The problems might arise with new Linux 
distributions containing new versions of postgresql, DBD and other perl 
module dependencies.

That's the one of the benefit of the open source. But the problem is 
that most developers move to the next cool thing (LSMB 1.3, 2.0) etc.
because clients are always asking for the latest and the greatest. And 
it is not always possible for small shops (like me) to keep supporting a 
number of entirely different code bases.

I have just started supporting a few LSMB installations and also about 
to offer hosting. While doing a custom work on LSMB for a client I did 
discover few minor issues and reported one of these (customer/vendor 
lookup do not honor start/end dates) to the list. So I might be 
contributing any support/fixes in future. But I shall be really happy if 
the LSMB team can announce a bit extended support period like 2-5 years etc.
