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.
