Fedora Release Life Cycle

The Fedora Project releases a new version of Fedora about every 6 months and provides updated packages (maintenance) to these releases for about 13 months. This allows users to "skip a release" while still being able to always have a system that is still receiving updates.
...
Maintenance Schedule

We say maintained for about 13 months because the supported period for released releases is dependent on the date the release under development goes final. As a result, Release X is supported until one month after the release of Release X+2.

This translates into:

* Fedora 10 will be maintained until 1 month after the release of Fedora 12.
* Fedora 11 will be maintained until 1 month after the release of Fedora 13.
