I just copied the text we use for 1.9, but there's a distinction: users
of 1.9 have had time to upgrade to 1.10 before 1.14.0 becomes GA,
whereas users of 1.13 have not. So, should we promise some sort of
grace period for users of 1.13.x — i.e., a period following the release
of 1.14.0 during which we'll still fix security bugs in 1.13.0?

Granted, 1.13 was a regular release and was only promised to be
supported for six months (or until 1.14.0) in the first place, so the
grace period needn't be long.

Cheers,

Daniel
