Could it be possible to use the same schema that Mandriva use + one
"LTS" with three years of support?

Regular releases every six months with 18 month support.

But we could include this "kind of" LTS with 36 month.

Difference with Ubuntu will be that our LTS will be launched only
after the previous LTS ends its cycle.

Something like this: http://img819.imageshack.us/i/mageiareleases.jpg/

My doubt is will Magea community be able to handle the support for
four releases at the same time in semesters when it happen?

If you add the LTS, should regular release support be reduced to 12
months? This way, you'll never have more than 3 releases "alive" at
the same time.
