I don't expect to see Kubuntu LTS until the next Ubuntu LTS. After all, what
will having Kubuntu be LTS when the Ubuntu version is not LTS mean? What
happens when the next Ubuntu LTS comes along, will the Kubuntu LTS extend to
the term of the Ubuntu LTS? Will this mean that there will be a nearly double-
term of LTS for packages in main? Will only KDE packages get updates and not
core libraries or Gnome packages?
Breaking sync with core-Ubuntu LTS will cause some major headaches for the
Kubuntu developers, as well as core-Ubuntu devs. So, for those reasons, I
don't think it's practical to have Kubuntu LTS until the next LTS term. Even
though I would like to see a Kubuntu release with the LTS status, it seems
unlikely to me.
