Apologies if this is old hat.  I live under a rock.

https://wiki.ubuntu.com/HardyHeron/Beta/Kubuntu says:

"With the news concerning the release of the KDE 4 desktop, it was 
decided by Canonical that Kubuntu 8.04 would not be a Long Term Support 
(LTS) release."

Is it possible for Kubuntu to have an LTS schedule that is out of phase 
with Ubuntu's?

https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Releases shows Ubuntu's release schedule, but 
where can one see Kubuntu's release schedule?  I see an "8.10 LTS 
Intrepid Ibex" in http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kubuntu but have not 
found anything official on the (K)ubuntu sites.

What is the upgrade path for KDE fans who don't want to be forced to 
upgrade every 6 months?

Johann
