Tendenci Lifecycle for Support
Products will reach an end of life-cycle for various reasons. Technology moves fast, and better, stronger features may be available. Security changes and products that were built on and supported before, may no longer be available.
What version of Tendenci your site is running now? Please upgrade your site to the latest version of Tendenci. https://tendenci.readthedocs.io/en/latest/upgrade/upgrade-to-tendenci12.html also check out Tendenci Changelog–a chronological list of user-facing changes made to the Tendenci platform.
Every Tendenci product has a lifecycle. The lifecycle begins when a product is released and ends when it is no longer supported. Knowing key dates in this lifecycle helps you make informed decisions about when to upgrade or make other changes to your software. Here are the details of the Tendenci lifecycle.

If you are working with an independent Open Source Tendenci Developer and self hosting - contact them first as they will know your site and have the same documentation we use in house. Support your local open source developers!
Security a concern? Consider hosting with our InfoSec / DevOps professionals in our Tendenci Cloud at Amazon Web Services.
Legal Restraints on Hosting in the US? We get it. Yes, some countries have physical hosting requirements for legal reasons. Not your fault. And YES, absolutely, we can help you set up your Tendenci site on your servers. In fact local developers can probably set up a fully featured Tendenci Membership website (PDF download) by reading https://tendenci.readthedocs.io/en/latest/ and downloading the code from pypi or github.
