I'm reading here:
https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Features/Extended_Life_Cycle#Detailed_Description

I don't see any such definition.  I also don't see a definition for
the length of time, or issue severity coverage.  (The last of these,
to be fair, Jeroen explicitly asked us to weigh in on.)

Furthermore:
https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Features/Extended_Life_Cycle#Scope

There's an admonition that says, "Note that the following items may
only apply to those that opt-in on ELC support."  That sounds pretty
open-ended too.  If Jeroen and the rest of the group signed up on the
wiki page are interested in doing this in Fedora, they need to round
up those details and put them in the page for consideration.
