The sentence explaining the deprecation schedule is ambiguous. Make it
clear that a feature deprecated in the Nth release is guaranteed to
remain available in the N+1th release. Removal can occur in the N+2nd
release or later.


So we're changing

   The feature will remain functional for 2 releases prior to actual removal.

to

   The feature will remain functional for 1 more release after deprecation.

How about

   The feature will remain functional for the release in which it was
   deprecated and one further release. After these two releases, the
   feature is liable to be removed.

Longer, but definitely conveys more information in an easier-to-understand format.
