It seems a logical conclusion. If he was in the majority, then fedora
would have a long "support" lifetime. 6 months is the time frame those
doing the heavy lifting felt would be best to keep things up to date,
but not falling apart.

So reiterate... how do I know? Simple, it isn't so. If there is a
large majority of people who want a long real cycle, they best get to
work and contribute the necessary resources to get that done - but
then you'll be leaving out those of us who like the short lifetimes.
