Parent article: Fedora board meeting minutes
both indicate the previous updates and security policy. It lists the example that Fedora Core 3 was updated until Fedora Core 5 test2 was released. Under the new policy (using for example the same versions, just for comparison), Fedora Core 3 would be updated until Fedora Core 5 release plus one month. This is, in effect, an extension of maintenance by test2->release+1m.
Also discussed was "should the new policy be implemented retroactively" such that FC5 is covered until FC7+1m, or should it start with FC6. I believe there was concensus that it should include FC5 as well. This gives people a chance to do the upgrade from N to N+2 and be covered for the whole duration between, without forgoing security errata for a time, and without requiring an upgrade from N to N+1 to N+2 in order to get security errata during that time.
