The subject has been discussed since Fedora Core 1. No further
discussion is necessary. The life cycle policy,
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/LifeCycle , use to be readily accessible
from the front page of the Fedora web site. It is now totally hidden
away. You need to know that you are searching for "life cycle" in
order to find it. One would expect to find a link under "Schedule" if
not "Releases". If it makes you feel any better file a RFE bug report
for a link on the front page.
