The original commitment was two releases a year with security updates available for FCN until FCN+2 was released.
Care to elaborate? Where was it said? Yes, it was said that there are will be security updates "for approximately one year" and there are will be two releases per year - but I never seen any commitment to the FCN and FNC+2 overlap. A lot of people just assumed that "approximately one year" mean FCN and FNC+2 overlap (me included) but when FC3 was scheduled everyone found out that "approximately one year" mean "we'll stop support for FC1 before FC3 is released because we have limited resources and can not support both FC1/FC2 'in fligh' and do quality testing for FC3 release". There was some grumbling (because users hoped to switch from FC1 straight to FC3) - but I never seen any evidence that "approximately one year" ever was supposed to mean "slightly more then one year to allow FCN => FCN+2 transition" so it was left at that.
