Start by looking at the current roadmap. 
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/ReleaseSchedule For Karmic, look at the Debian 
Import Freeze on https://wiki.ubuntu.com/DebianImportFreeze June 25th 
and the Feature Freeze https://wiki.ubuntu.com/FeatureFreeze On August 
27th.  If it is an imported Debian package, the current version on June 
25th will be it.  If it is a Ubuntu package, the version on August 27th 
is it.  You can do minor revs for bug fix, but major version changes are 
locked on those dates.  And yes, that is well before release.  And it 
really sucks if a package is broken, like BOCHs BIOS for Gutsy, or 
Kompozer for Intrepid.
