Edubuntu 12.04 LTS

The Edubuntu team is proposing that the Edubuntu 12.04 release be supported for 5 years as an LTS release.

Considerations

  • Kubuntu LTS Support Cycle. Many of the packages shipped in Edubuntu that are not shipped in Ubuntu are covered by Kubuntu. Kubuntu is applying for LTS status as well with 5 years of support for critical security updates.

  • Dropped Packages. Certain packages may prove a challenge to support for 5 years and we will be dropping them. Since Mono won't be shipped in Ubuntu anymore, we will be dropping Mono as well. This means that we'll be dropping GBrainy since we aren't willing to support its mono dependencies for 5 years. It will still be available in universe and possibly in an extras meta-package.
