this is actually outdated, ubuntu switched to armhf by default on
feature freeze (feb 16th).
we stopped building armel images and the armel packages are now
"community supported" (i.e. wont see backing by canonical).
all released and supported images in ubuntu are armhf across the board.
there is no final decision about any LTS status yet but i would assume
that armhf stays in the "normal" 18 months support cycle for 12.04 with
the possible exception of some bits shipped for arm server.
