Subject End of Life Policy

So, we are nearing a new stable branch.  For the first time in a long 
time we will have a no-longer-developed-but-stable-branch in wide use. 

I would like to have a semi-official policy on how long we will provide 
security backports for 2.0 releases.

I suggest a value between 6 and 12 months.

Many distrobutions will provide their own security updates anyways, so 
this would be a service to only a portion of our users.

As always, this is open source, and I would not stop anyone from 
continuing support for the 2.0.x branch. My goal is to help set our end 
user's expectations for how long they have to upgrade to 2.2.
