*   I suggest everyone takes a read through  
 as to what LTS is actually meant to be focused on.

For what it’s worth, I think Tim’s comments are spot-on.  An LTS release should 
not change unless there are serious bugs or new security flaws.

It is tempting to add new hardware support, nor improved performance.  “Hey, 
everyone will get this in their long-term offering.”  But you’re thinking the 
wrong way.  Imagine that each new patch to an LTS release requires massive 
effort, such as changing the firmware on a plane. Does the change justify that? 
 Almost always, the answer is no.
