Re: Responses Needed: Flavor Participation for 24.04 LTS

I can affirm with regards to Lubuntu that we are participating in 24.04 LTS, with a support period of 3 years as typical for Lubuntu.

We are working on getting everything necessary for the Technical Board recertification and will send that soon as well.

Subject: Responses Needed: Flavor Participation for 24.04 LTS
Hello flavors!

As we do around the start of every new cycle, I am reaching out to all
the current official Ubuntu flavors to confirm active participation in
the upcoming Ubuntu release - 24.04 LTS, codenamed Noble.

Working towards a release requires a lot of effort, so we'd like to make sure
all the flavors are ready, properly staffed, and have enough time allocated to
make 24.04 LTS happen for their users. This is why, similarly to last time, I
will need a confirmation follow-up message about Noble participation and your
planned efforts this cycle from every flavor, that is:

  * Edubuntu
  * Kubuntu
  * Lubuntu
  * Ubuntu Budgie
  * Ubuntu Cinnamon
  * Ubuntu Kylin
  * Ubuntu MATE
  * Ubuntu Studio
  * Ubuntu Unity
  * Xubuntu

Diversity of opinion within the Ubuntu ecosystem makes us stronger. Flavors play
an important role in making a resilient, inclusive, and technically-sound
Ubuntu, for all of us, inspiring us to do better, and be better. As important
players within the project, we especially value your opinions, and are happy to
address concerns if you run into trouble.

This release, we are making a concerted effort to move off of Ubiquity entirely
and across the board, in time for the LTS. Ubuntu Budgie has paved the way for
flavor participation with the new Ubuntu Desktop Installer, while Lubuntu
continues to innovate and push the limits of what is possible with Calamares.
Whatever route your flavor chooses, it would be an incredibly wise decision to
move off of Ubiquity.

If you have any concerns regarding your participation, or a switch in
installers, please feel free to reach out to me, or anyone from the
~ubuntu-release team.

Thank you!
