    And so it begins, redux

    This just in from the ubuntu-devel-annouce mailing list:

    Most cycles, we have a week of breathing room where we can flip all the
    switches in a coordinated fashion and open everything at exactly the
    same time, but this archive opening sees various members of the release,
    archive, and toolchain teams in transit all over the globe, so we'll
    stagger things a bit.

    In the next day or two, you should see a followup to this email from
    Matthias Klose doing his usual announcement of what has changed in the
    default toolchain, and Colin Watson turning on autosyncs from Debian.

    Rather than wait until we're all awake at the same time, however, I'm
    unfreezing the archive this morning and declaring Saucy open for active
    development. Happy merging.

    On behalf of the Release Team,

    Adam Conrad

    So we are just rolling on

    I just addressed an issue regarding proposals made effecting Lubuntu dev:

    https://lists.launchpad.net/lubuntu-qa/msg02298.html

    Just thinking about Julien's proposals here:

    https://lists.launchpad.net/lubuntu-qa/msg02271.html

    Please correct me if I'm mistaken but I think Ubuntu's nine month
    support cycle for Raring throws a wrench in the works as far as being
    able to skip a Saucy (13.10) release :^(

    Lubuntu 12.04 is supported until October 2013.

    Lubuntu 12.10 is supported until April 2014.

    Lubuntu 13.04 is supported until January 2014.

    So, in order to receive security updates until our Lubuntu 14.04 in
    April 2014, Lubuntu users would have to downgrade from 13.04 to 12.10 :^(

    OTOH we could make 13.10 basically a maintenance release with a minimal
    amount of non-security changes just to get us past this first nine month
    hump.

    Then we could maybe use a PPA, or combination of PPA's, for the more
    adventurous Lubuntu changes we want to see in 14.04. Ubuntu GNOME does
    this with these two PPA's:

    https://launchpad.net/~gnome3-team/+archive/gnome3

    https://launchpad.net/~gnome3-team/+...gnome3-staging

    Or maybe that just complicates matters, but if my math is correct
    Ubuntu's new nine month cycle has us painted into a corner.
    So we roll on

    Normal maintainer uploads are starting to trickle in now.

    They really should make it 12 months of support on ubuntu and it's derivitives...9 months is not really quite long enough, especially if you want to skip a release...
