Iirc you would get support in terms of infrastructure in case you have a clear proposal and enough people doing the work. Also they should show, that they are really interested in doing this for long enough, that it does not look like a failed project. E.g. starting now a Fedora LTS project and ending it next year, because there are not enough maintainers/people interested in doing the work, does not look good for Fedora. If you think you have enough people, then maybe create a list of them and show how they will maintain the packages for the LTS. E.g. they could be already (co)maintainers of the current Fedora packages and do work within Fedora Infrastructure, Security Response Team and Release Engineering, Translations and all the other teams that are needed to compose a distribution. But you cannot expect much support from people who do not have a big enough interest in this project and spend time on it, that they could spend on improving the parts of Fedora, they are interested in.
