6 months sounds fine to me for most of the bugfix releases.

Well, I would suggest to leave either the last bugfix release or some
generic version, e.g. 3.5, 3.4, 3.3 longer time. We want to keep the
version flag on the oldest affected version. It might be handy to have
the old version to correctly mark the old bugs that were not reported in

I mentioned in some older mail that people still use old version even 1
year after the release.

The generic version 3.3, 3.4, 3.5 might be better because it will be
clear that it means the code line and not a precise version.

Best Regards,
