Or more asking if it is possible, which you answered to ;)

Unless a configuration is not in the CI system, I do not see it possible
to say it is a reference / Tier 1 configuration. It can be made to work,
but is prone to errors.

As 4.8 will be a long lived platform, it would be good to add these new
operating systems to the CI and testing system. In case of a 'normal patch
release' this naturally would not be so important.

Do you think these can be added after 4.8.3 (which is planned to be
released in August, depending a bit on the 5.0.0 schedule)?
