Ubuntu GNOME is seeking approval to become an official 'Long Term Support' release with its upcoming version

Ubuntu GNOME 14.04 Seeking LTS Status

From OMG! Ubuntu:
If approved, Ubuntu GNOME 14.04 would commit to providing its users with an extended period of package updates, critical fixes and security updates until the time of the next LTS release, Ubuntu 16.04, in 2016.

At two years and three months the LTS window would be half that of ‘regular’ Ubuntu, which is backed by Canonical for five years on the desktop. By comparison, its current stable release, version 13.10, is supported for just nine months. For a project with limited manpower a LTS-to-LTS bridge seems like an ideal compromise.
