"After the release" is "before the release"
Congratulations everyone, we got a fantastic LTS release out, some of the reactions of our users you can see here. Well done! :)
At the same time understandable, but also worrying is the look at our sponsoring page.
Silently with all the release freezes in place, the number of open sponsorship items has crept up to ~70 again.
If you are an Ubuntu developer or can help out with reviewing patches, please head to the sponsoring queue and help out. Many contributors and Ubuntu users are going to appreciate it. (Docs can be found here.)
