First check if the Feature status is "done".

Introduce a 'zypper lifecycle' command, which will provide information about product and package life cycle, especially inform about packages which are out of support or packages which will be out of support soon.

This information will be provided via a package, which will be part of product's update channel and as such can be updated when EOL for specific packages is known.

Products already do provide this information.

Defining a life cycle on per-package basis allows us to perform package upgrades and drops (e.g. for packages coming from modules), this requires informing customer about support status and EOL.

In principle this can be implemented as a standalone tool; implementing as zypper plugin is just matter of user's convenience.
