ES6 will be end of life when the version 8 will come out. there is no alpha of version 8 so we have at least half a year before that happens.
Elasticsearch 6 is going to end of support at the end of this year :
So we should work on compatibility with 7 (before it is also EOL ^^)
Already? :o Is it because it's written 6.8.x EOL date 2020-11-20 Maintained until 8.0.0 ?
There are no signs of ES 8 alpha https://github.com/elastic/elasticsearch/tags

ES8 is coming. So is ES6 actual EOL.
Is turns out the EOL ES page is wrong. As 6.8.x still gets updates.
But the 1st ES8 alpha has been published . So we should expect ES6 to EOL in around 6 months .
