Intro and LTS point release question

Erick Brunzell
Hello, I just subscribed to the mailing list. I'm not a developer, just
a user/tester.

Some of you may recognize me as Erick Brunzell from Launchpad or
lbsolost from the QA Tracker.

I recently pushed for a fix to a bug where adding
'gnome-session-flashback' to Ubuntu GNOME provided a "Flashback
(Compiz)" session at login even though 'compiz' was not installed:

https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/trusty/+source/gnome-panel/+bug/1332183

I'd already tested the changes in Ubuntu, Ubuntu GNOME, and Edubuntu
Utopic without an issue, and just yesterday I tested the proposed change
in both Ubuntu and Ubuntu GNOME Trusty using the 20140701 iso images to
perform fresh installs.

I just wondered if Edubuntu was planning on a Trusty 14.04.1 point
release? If so when the daily images resume building I'd like to test
choosing flashback as the default session during an installation just in
an overabundance of caution. I suppose though that I'd get the same
result if I just ran apt-get update from the live DE before beginning
the installation.

Regarding Precise I have a hardware specific corner issue that's caused
me to keep using the archived 12.04.1 images so I wondered if Edubuntu
is going to have a 12.04.5 build with the Trusty hardware enablement stack?

Neither issue is a big deal at all but I caught a brief blurb at the
Ubuntu GNOME QA mailing list leading up to Utopic Alpha 1 that led me to
believe Edubuntu may be opting out of interim releases altogether and
focusing only on LTS (good idea IMHO) so I thought I'd seek clarification.

Thanks,

Lance

PS: Feel free to request testing any time and I'll be glad to do my best.

Edubuntu will participate in 14.04.1 as we did for all the point
releases of 12.04 LTS in the past.

Daily builds of trusty have recently been re-enabled to start preparing
14.04.1 but due to a Launchpad issue that's still being resolved, we
haven't had a single good build since.

Yes, we will.

I noticed that we have some updated images again so I decided to prepare
for next week but encountered a bug:

https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu-qa-website/+bug/1341731

I think the image links are just truncated by one trusty directive.

As always, thanks for all your hard work.

Lance
