LTS not mentioned on Security policies page

Description

The "Django security policies" page doesn't mention 1.4 as an LTS release under the "Supported versions" section, giving the impression that it doesn't receive any updates anymore, while the "release process" page has been updated, so now the docs are inconsistent.

Hi,

Indeed, the existence of an LTS release should be mentionned there.

I created a pull request and left comments. If you have problems with sphinx, feel free to seek help in #django-dev.

Thanks Tim. Just made another commit linking to release-process as you suggest. Downgrading to Sphinx 1.2.0 got the thing building and I can confirm that it builds without warnings to HTML with the correct :ref: link in place.

Looks like there could be some compatibility issue with Sphinx 1.2.1 (which only released last week); will investigate further and raise a ticket to see if it can be reproduced by anyone else.

Should this also be backported to the 1.4.x branch? It's still supported, according to the LTS policy :-)

I tried but docs/internals/security.txt isn't present on the 1.4 branch and I don't think it's worth adding it.
