I would suggest any bug fix, papercut or not, has a chance of making it in to any current supported release of Ubuntu
through the SRU process.  For many folks, the "latest" release of Ubuntu is the most recent stable LTS version, which
happens to be 12.04 LTS until 14.04.01 LTS is released.

Perhaps you should consider including all supported versions of Ubuntu in the Papercuts project, or at least all
supported LTS versions?
