Let's Discuss Interim Releases (and a Rolling Release)

Along with no UDS this feels like a further move away from being a community project for Ubuntu.

After much time lobbying KDE (and other upstreams) to move to 6
monthly releases that has been working nicely for some years but if we
lose that cadance we will be in danger of losing a lot of what makes
this work well.

Currently we put beta and RC releases of upstream projects in the
development release for widespread testing.  Where do we put those in
this model of removing the non-LTS releases?

When the idea of doing away with alphas and betas was being discussed
it was said that infrastrucure would be added to make that easy for
flavours.  What is the status of that?
