As a point of reference, the OpenStack Infrastructure team only uses
LTS distro releases to run production systems. We've also got a
modest sized OpenStack deployment on its way to production, again on
an LTS distro release. I agree that releasing server software which
is only well tested on "desktop" pace distro releases would be a
serious misstep for the project.
