the suggested timelife was 13 months, e.g. the intention was to allow
for two releases and 1 extra month, so that people can upgrade from
version N to N+1 with a transition time for this skip-an-intermediate-
release-jump of one month.

Given that schedules can go back and forth like currently for F7,
could the policy be reworded to "ETA is one month after the release of
the next-to-next subsequent release which usually sums up to 13
months". That way we wouldn't have to adjust the absolute ETA if a
release slips.
