I guess I'm thinking maybe we should pick up 3.8 stable, at least for 
awhile. How long have we committed to 3.5.y ? Maybe we could curtail our 
efforts there and redirect them to 3.8.y. We are going to have a Raring 
LTS kernel in 12.04.3 so its clearly within our interest.

Luis - how much additional time do you think it would take to support a 
3.8 stable ?
