Which is probably far more aggressive than necessary for most

6 months is a pretty aggressive time-line.

over a year old will not get even critical security updates, so
upgrading the release is something the sysadmin has to take 
steps to do.

Of course.  So there are (a) rolling releases or (b) distributions 
support in place updates [most these days, I would think?].  For
openSUSE (a) is Tumbleweed and (b) is "zypper dup" [Distribution

Anyway, either Fedora or openSUSE on a desktop should provide a
reasonably current installation of GNOME and/or Evolution.

Just a fyi Debian is also a good choice. Stable is released every 2-3
years and testing is a rolling release which includes Evolution 

I update my systems every day. It takes about 5 minutes for each one
which is not a "high price" when I consider that all of them are
running the most recent version.

The upgrade from Fedora 21 to Fedora 22 did run about 2 hours over the
network. It's worth to invest this time !
