Actually since Update Manager only starts offering 10.04 LTS -> 12.04
LTS around the .1 time frame, most of the LTS users won't upgrade
until then. I think that's great and precisely like it should be. Most
of the current 11.10 users will upgrade to 12.04 earlier, and already
get a lot more polished release than the usual half-yearly. Then the
LTS users should get a really smooth experience in August with the
additional fixes.
