Which is intentional on the FC side and I don't see why FE should be any
better. You know perfectly well the FC EOL is not designed to allow
FC(N-1) to FC(N+1).

I say keep FE proper in line with FC, which includes same EOL *and* same
initial availability. It's all too easy to start trailing for one
release, then two, then so much no one really knows when support starts
and stops

Get a Legacy-style group for FE, and if they want to do long-term
maintenance for years much power to them, but here you're trying to
force on volunteers conditions paid contributors to Fedora (@rh, FC)
already said no to.

Since the EOL was never defined before, the *only* moral contract
current contributors have with FE is to do something "like FC", which
has very clear EOL policies (and not the one you advocate)
