There was much confusion about this Squeeze vs. Ubuntu LTS thing including 
infamous meetings of release managers and Shuttleworth PR games. In the end 
this only got some Debian Developers extremely pissed off due to lack of 
communication, a bunch of flamewars and a couple of false announcements with 
unrealistic freeze dates to confuse users. So now we are where we are: LTS 
will do their "release" while Debian won't be even frozen at that point.
