My vote:

For all releases with even number:
First six months - Feature additions, bug and security fixes
next six months - Only bug and security fixes
next twelve months -  Only critical security fixes
EOL

For all releases with uneven number:
First six months - Feature additions, bug and security fixes
next seven months - Only bug and security fixes
EOL

Such a theme would be helpful for users from hosting companies that run
FC on their machines.

Other variants (support only each third release for longer periods;
support the releases with uneven numbers only for 7 month in general,
... ) are thinkable, too.
