[Openstack] Providing packages for stable releases of OpenStack

I'm ok with everything so far, but from "
*"The stable branch will only be maintained until the next release is out.
This period may be extended if there are volunteers to maintain it beyond
With a 6 months release cycles, it still looks a sort period of time for a
production deployment, and some people/companies can not relay on those
volunteers to appear to maintain it for more time.
Is there any plan (or can be proposed) to have some kind of LTS
release? I've read some place that essex + Ubuntu 12.04 LTS can be a good
candidate; essex is considered the first "production ready" release, but it
will not have quantum, we are tying openstack within an specific
distribution... Anyway, (ubuntu12.04 + essex)^LTS looks great, and we have
time to discuss what to do for a future "LTS" release.
