Ok confused on this.  Are we shipping a LTS version of Kubuntu and a non-LTS
version of Kubuntu?  After reading Rich's (nixternal) blog I'm even more
"Yes, you heard that right! Kubuntu 8.04, the Hardy Heron, will provide you
the option of using either KDE 3.5 or KDE 4. Jonathan Riddell just posted
the news in an email to the Kubuntu Developer's mailing list, and you can
read that email right
We are going to focus on getting the bugs fixed in 3.5 and creating room for
a Kubuntu with KDE 4. This means that Kubuntu 8.04 will not be an LTS (Long
Term Support) release and will offer the typical 18 months of support. After
the 8.04 release you can pretty much bet on Kubuntu being a KDE 4 release

I think we are doing a disservice if we aren't doing a LTS version.  Can
someone help me out?
