I am just finishing up a fresh Kubuntu 8.04 install using the original
release CDs (I didn't download 8.04.1 as I had 8.04 CDs I got at UDS).
After the install, on the first upgrade I got:
Install 7, upgrade 147, remove 0
So for the standard Kubuntu default install (I didn't add anything yet),
we've touched ~15% of the packages post-release. I don't have stats from
previous releases to compare, but that sems like a lot.

SRU or a poor state of a lot of packages at release. I suspect it's some
Do we need to reconsider how we approach getting to a release? For an LTS
release should we just add 2 months on the schedule? It was done
officially for Dapper and I wonder if we didn't do it informally for Hardy?
