I don't mind disagreeing, but I don't think we do.

What I'd like (in my deams) is for <some set of people> to work
togather to provide a consistent upstream LTS, which you could deploy
from git and distros could easily package to fit their individual needs.

I just think if we look at who in the community has developer
resources and a vested interest in LTS it's the Distros (and
perhaps some larger users?)
