I am talking about updates to the development version only, which would
appear in the subsequent stable release. Stable releases (LTS or not)
are not updated except for security updates and important bugs. This
isn't even a decision that needs to be made. Doing otherwise would
violate SRU policy (https://wiki.ubuntu.com/StableReleaseUpdates).
