Re: long term support release

I was wondering whether there is any possibility of having the
occasional 'long term support' (LTS) release of Fedora (say one every
two years or something) so that users can settle down with the distro
and actually become productive with it.
Say the LTS cycle is one release every two years (every fourth Fedora
release), and that the 'long term' for support only lasts for two years
(which is pretty short to use the term long for, I realize), then there
would only be one LTS release, and also the most current release to
worry about at any given time.

If there is simply not enough teampower to do this, then that's


That is essentially what was tried with the fedora legacy project (supporting eol fedora releases for a longer term) but there was not enough interest and support to keep it going. It did support RH9 and FC releases up to FC5 I think?
