Whiteboard

2013-04-04 [ogasawara]
Given the reduced support period for non-LTS releases (ie 9mo support beginning with 13.04), the kernel team has decided to refrain from supporting an LBM (linux-backports-modules) package for Raring and future non-LTS releases. The benefits of providing this package do not outweigh the support and maintenance burden. We will however continue to provide an LBM package for LTS releases.
