The name is only supposed to be used by developers during the
development cycle. Once it releases it becomes 10.04, 10.10 etc.

It's Ubuntu 10.04. Look at the CD, it doesn't say Lucid _anywhere_ on it.
Note the release announcement even plays down the name calling it just
"We" in the Ubuntu community should be encouraging people to use the
version numbers for releases and the codenames for development
versions. However _within_ our community it's not unusual to continue
using the names because we build an affection for them, having worked
on them for months and sporting t-shirts depicting the animals.
