Right, that means:
a) we follow a normal six month release process, without any specific focus
on making the release appropriate for the long term support cycle 
b) we have to wait until October before shipping a long term supported
release, while we've committed to doing so in April
We can't just follow the same release process and expect to be able to ship
a long term supportable system. 6.04 will be different, so we need to think
about it differently.
 this is all about managing long term support cycle, not 'enterprise',
which doesn't actually mean anything sensible
