[openstack-dev] [release] Support phase clarification

Just looking for clarification on our support phase timing now with the
shorter release cycle for Ocata.

According to our published support phase schedule [1], each phase is in
6 month increments from the release date.

In the past, this had lined up nicely so that when N was release, N-1
and N-2 rolled over into the next support phase. Now with Ocata being
released less than six months from Newton, I am assuming this will not
be the case, and we are in fact sticking with the published phases. Or
are we adjusting for this cycle to stay with the N-1, N-2 convention?
