Community Cluster Life Cycles Extended to 6 Years

For the last several years, we've heard your input around longer lifespans for community clusters, and now, thanks to the end of Moore's Law, it makes sense to begin adjusting to a longer lifespan.

Following an announcement July 31 at the annual Community Cluster Town Hall all Community Clusters now operate at a total life span of 6 years.
