maybe hardy...... hardy should be a priority as people who have rolled out
an LTS release who plan to stick with it for at least 2 years to maximise
the LTS features should not be stuck with outdated software that is a big

I don't understand why LTS release are just stuck on the back burner -
what is the point of LTS if it's not going to be maintained and kept as
current as possible for people investing in it.
