I don't understand this. Studio bases on current cycle packages every time, it's
not looking back in any way. The whole point is to not having to maintain
anything in the core package level, that would occur had we chosen to stand on
an older release only (eventually anyway, once the support from vanilla and
Xubuntu team ends).

Is this just a misunderstanding of some sort?

I can check later today, I'm sure it's somewhere in the seeds.
