Is there an explicit list of > supported platforms (and perhaps a notion of support tiers)? It is not like there is a Git company who employs developers to support certain platforms. This is the mailing list for the open source development community for Git, and Developers come and leave over time [*]. The best you can get out of here is: if you find portability issues when you tried to make it work on your favorite platform, you can raise it here and (1) somebody with more Git experience on the same platform may solve it for you, (2) somebody with similar Git experience as you do (or less) on the same platform may solve it with you, or (3) somebody without acess to the platform may offer to help you solve it. You cannot reasonably expect more than that from us on this list. However, major platforms have their own (often binary) packaging system that offer Git packaged for their users. Debian/Ubuntu ship their own .deb, Git-for-Windows binary installer is made available promptly after we release a new version, macOS folks have Apple Git and homebrew or macPorts or whatever (but do not quote me on this; I am not an Apple user). What they do is not under our control, and you need to ask them what their support policies, EOL timelines, and such. Some of these packagers lurk around here and may respond, but that is you getting lucky ;-) [Footnote] * You can peek into config.mak.uname to see the list of platforms that have had a working Git some time in the past. Hopefully most of them are still up-to-date and working, but we wouldn't even know if a minority platform, for which an entry for it was added to the file in the past by some developer who needed a working Git on it, no longer works with the latest version of Git with recent toolchains after the original developer lost interest.
