Yes, I'm familiar with Ubuntu's schedule and nomenclature. Doesn't mean 
that some part of my brane does not link 14.04 with LTS.

By the by, continuous integration isn't Ubuntu's model. It's been 
Debian's model since woody. Ubuntu looks like a continuous integration 
(or rolling) distribution because Ubuntu releases start out life as 
snapshots of Debian unstable. Riding on Debian's shoulders is what puts 
Ubuntu ahead. And to hear the Debian folks tell it, Canonical 
contributes very little in the other direction.
