RTM archive plans

Registered by Colin Watson on 2014-06-09

Ubuntu for phones will reach its first release-to-manufacturing (RTM) milestone in September 2014. This falls in the middle of an Ubuntu development cycle, so we need some creative archive management to ensure that we can produce stable builds. I'll be presenting our plan to build a special-purpose derived distribution for this, and would like to make doubly sure that we've covered all the bases.
