Greg said that they'd probably use a LTS Kubuntu. Last I'd heard (I
may be wrong/this may have changed), Hardy won't be an LTS for Kubuntu
due to the newness of KDE 4.0 and the fact that they didn't want to do
an LTS version of Hardy with anything older than 4.0.

It's another thing to keep in mind.
