You must be thinking: “What do you mean by refreshing storage? I didn’t think you could drink storage?” No, sad to say, this blog post isn’t about the type of refreshment you get from a crisp cold glass of Anaconda Cola (yum!)
Personally, I prefer the approach where we figure out what kind of tires we
need on the next car and plan for them when we buy the car over an approach
where we try to change the tires while the car is in motion.

If the "rolling releases" really aren't intended for end-users, then we
should just drop the fiction, say the change is from a 6-month cadence
to a 2-year cadence, and be done with it.
Yes, it has all the problems we've come to know-and-hate with stale
applications. So, either allow SRU exceptions for more applications like
we do for Firefox, or start really supporting Backports for the LTS.
It's a waste of everyone's time and effort to rework the whole project
around talk of "rolling releases" when it's really just the same old
development release on a slower schedule. (Remember how we used to call
monthly images alphas and betas? That was ages ago, like 4 whole months.)

If like Martin Owens you're feeling the lack of Ubuntu community and wanting an Ubuntu community that cares about everyone's contribution, doesn't make random announcements every couple of days that have obviously been made behind closed doors and cares about a community made upstream desktop (and err.. whole graphics stack), you'd be very welcome here at Kubuntu.
