* There have been five updates so far:
  3/5 have been released by existing security team members and we've always
  stated that we help to get this started, but it needs to be self-hosting 
* Noone has taken care of the linux-2.6 update, although all the patches
  have been prepared and Carlos has made various tests
* Noone is taking care of updating lts-needed.txt or other triage

So, from my view it's fairly obvious that Debian LTS will only be sustainable
if there's an ongoing base of sponsored work.
