    The U+1 sub-forum will still be here, we may just remove the version name, and just call it the U+1 sub-forum. The Forum Council will have to discuss this amongst ourselves.

    If it's a rolling release then, as U will be the last LTS, we'll always be on U+1.

    Or perhaps more accurately, just U+.

    I'm still going through all the email on the ubuntu-devel mailing list, but it looks like there will be monthly releases, so there will still be plenty to discuss.

    Seems obvious to me...

    Ubu development will take place on the "Ubuntu Touch, the Phone, the Tablet", Ubuntu Glasses and whatever.

    The mailing says, "I think we should keep LTS releases". ZZZZZZZZZZZzzzzzzzzzzzz...

    Rolling release will be a snooze, too.

    "Keep doing daily quality and keep improving our daily quality" ?!?!?!?

    Translation: Bug fixes, and more features stripped from the Gnome core.

    I have a *feeling* we're going to be relegated to "Maytag Repairman" status...

    You may have notice all the "quality" (background) work made with that Raring cycle: quite everything now has been "patched" with "test.py" to first find the compiling issues (included the hidden ones). The mainly ironed are indeed the languages (gcc, python, ruby, ...) to get the false positive packaging troubles wiped and then get less (a huge less) bugs reported. Thats where quality is now onboard, and the work is still in progress. So instead of loosing time with "inherated" bugs introduced by "parent" packages, devs have (will have) more time to allow to more clever issues.
    As Canonical try to be a global player, its understandable to move with only LTS for stable release, and rolling monthly intermediates.
    Keeps going on

    Re: Suggestion: Rolling / monthly release. What's going to happen on ubuntu +1 sub-fo

    We discussed what to do here, when and if the rolling release becomes a reality (it will) while doing some more tweaking on the forum backend. The version name will be removed, and the sub-forum will simply be called U+1. The big advantage will be that the sub-forum won't be archived every six months, and a new one created, so many of the fixes and work-a-rounds will be easier to find. Otherwise nothing should change.

    In the software world, a lot can change in a very short time, and doing things this way makes it more likely that you will find the best information.
    Might become a nightmare for mods/admins, unless you start locking threads after x length of time.

    The only interest that stale U+1 threads will get, will probably be from spam bots and n00bs.

    You'd be surprised how many request we get for information in some ofthe archived sub-forums.

    As far as spammers are concerned we have some tricks up our collective sleeves that we hope will make it very hard for spam-bots to get a foothold here.
