Depends on what EOL means practically, of course. As someone whose day job is engineering
the web platform for one of the big investment banks, I can tell you we only just got everyone
moved over to 2.2 (i.e. several years after 1.3 got canned in early 2010).

So while I’m not looking for the latest and greatest features in 2.2 at this stage, I do
want to continue to see bug fixes and security issues addressed for at least another five
years (ideally), and really 2 years at a minimum. I can easily see this might be asking too
much of volunteers, but those are my “enterprise” expectations.
