Hmmm. LTS install ISOs is an interesting idea, but not sure how people
feel about that. I mean, the kernel for the install ISO is just the
running kernel. You can still install the LTS kernel from a non-LTS
ISO.

Does anyone have a strong opinion on this?

The lts is generally optimized for server usage,
only bugfixes go into the lts line, no new drivers will be supported.
When we move to .32 i plan also to provide binary modules for it.

Perhaps it's interesting for some people, i recently added support for lts
installation and booting in archboot scripts, that was the reason for asking
if normal installation media wants also support this option.

Ok seems no real interest here, so aufs patch will not be needed in .32 lts.
