Xubuntu LTS proposal

So, as discussed around UDS time, we need to make an official request
for Xubuntu to be labeled as an LTS release.
Here are what I think we can sanely commit to:

3 yr LTS
Milestone image testing i386/amd64 (including point release updates post
release)
Best effort High/Critical bug fixes
Best effort security fixes for Xfce related packages

This would be made easier if Xubuntu Precise would be aligned with
Debian for their Wheezy release with the same base Xfce version.  With a
proposed March 2012 release date for 4.10, it's possible that Debian
could move to that release before their freeze during the summer.

Comments?

Thanks,
Micah
