Ubuntu discussing moving to LTS + rolling release model

Rick Spencer, Canonical's VP of Ubuntu Engineering, has put out a call to discuss dropping the "interim" Ubuntu
releases, which are those that are not long-term support (LTS) releases,
and switching to a rolling release model in between LTS releases.
Ubuntu has an amazing opportunity in the next 7-8 months to deliver a Phone
OS that will be widely adopted by users and industry while also putting
into place the foundation for a truly converged OS.
To succeed at this we will need both velocity and agility. Therefore, I am
starting a discussion about dropping non-LTS releases and move to a rolling
release plus LTS releases right now.
The ubuntu-devel mailing list thread is already getting fairly long, as might be guessed.
The idea will also be discussed at the upcoming online Ubuntu Developer Summit, March 5-6.
