  Changed paths:
    M documentation/release-notes-2-6.md

  Log Message:
  Update release-notes-2-6.md

Added a generic paragraph that
"Usually ReaR-2.6 should also work on newer versions
of the ... listed supported Linux based operating systems"
and possible reasons why things may fail with newer versions.
Additionally listed "Scientific Linux < 6" as no longer supported
because RHEL/CentOS < 6  are also no longer supported.
Furthermore dropped official support for Ubuntu < 16 because
Ubuntu 16.04 LTS is the oldest one that is supported by Ubuntu,
cf. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ubuntu#Releases
Finally dropped official support for Debian < 8 because
Debian 8 is the oldest one that is supported by Debian, cf.
