Do you mean by "trains" minor number, eg. 1.X.0? If so, what will be
a support time span for older versions? Let's say 1.1.x or 1.2.x
line? At one point we had this discussion, and I think that the
consensus was that version 1.(X-2) is unsupported. So, if there is a
new minor version every 3-4 months, I think that we should extend our
support period, which will, on the other hand, cause more burden for
the project.

BR, Jani
