I would like to point out that it was not simply Digium that made this
declaration.  It was the development community at large.  We had about 50 people
 at the developer conference in May.  When I brought up this subject, there was
not a single person who spoke up with objection to moving 1.2 into security only
maintenance.  There were many that just wanted to ensure that users were given
notice, which is why we decided on the August 1st date for the switch.

Most security fixes are pretty trivial.  If a security fix required
architectural changes, I would not mind explaining how they work on this list
for anyone that has questions.
