I believe v1 of Grafana is long deprecated. Should we use this port to track the latest grafana, or just remove it?

Can you copy/reference upstream docs on version support status/eol dates?

I am not totally familiar with Grafana's lifecycle, but from what I can recall, they will only release security fixes for the last major minor release (I could be wrong). Also, Grafana 2 was released in 2015 [1] which is the last time that this port receives an update. We are at Grafana 8 now.

Ping - we should mark this port as deprecated to avoid confusion IMO.
