There is no policy at the moment. However it would make sense to make
a best effort policy which will be something like:
on an ABI breakage the (stable) release will be updated with security
fixes for at least X years.

The number I have for X in my mind is something between 2 and 4. That
will of course be a statement of intention, which will depend on the
project's resources at each time. If you are looking for a contract or
so, you should check: http://www.gnutls.org/commercial.html
