We intended for them to EOL around the 14.04.1 time frame.  I think it now
seems reasonable to EOL them after 12.04.5 has released.

The point releases have roughly held a 6 month release cadence and I don't
believe that should change for 12.04.5.  Since 12.04.4 released in
February, August sounds like a reasonable estimate assuming we can avoid
clashing with the 14.04.1 release.  It might be more realistic to push
12.04.5 to September, but I'll leave that to the discretion of the Ubuntu
Release Team.
