EOL does not mean we simply drop the branch on the floor. The policy at 
<http://wiki.postgresql.org/wiki/PostgreSQL_Release_Support_Policy> 
states: "The first version update released after the EOL date will 
normally be the final one for that version. Note that this can extend 
support shortly past the listed date."  That "shortly" could amount to 
several months, and has in the past.

(I'm not sure I understand why you need a separate VM for each branch, 
as your post seems to imply.)
