Here is how i interpret what is available on the Fedora web site:

Fedora Core updates _will_ be via RHN.   These maintenance updates will
only be available for 2 to 3 months after the following release of Fedora.
That means you'd get 6 to 9 months of updating for each release from RHN.
After that you'll have to rely on 3rd parties.  In any case RedHat
explicitly states there will NOT be a Service Level Agreement attached to
_ANY_ package updates for Fedora whether in the maintenance period or not.

Check out   http://fedora.redhat.com  to make your own interpretation.
