Err... sorry from my understanding like this year... one new long term
kernel added so it is N+1 then next year is N+1+1 and two years drop
one so it is N+1+1-1... so every year there will be one new long term
added and every two years there will be one overall long term kernel
added to total number of long term kernels... since two are added
within 2 years and one dropped every 2 years. So there are not only 2
long term kernels at any one time in this case... ... someone correct
me if I am wrong.

Thanks.

Kindest regards,
Giam Teck Choon
