     6All support levels are  
     7 
     8 * '''Cluster Support''': All packages included in `-cluster` are available and will receive updates.  New software will also be made available.  The `-thirdparty` package will be installable. 
     9 * '''Full Support''': All packages included in `-workstation` are available and will receive updates; other packages will be updated at the discretion of the Debathena team.  New software included in the `-workstation` metapackage will be made available.  No effort will be made to support the `-thirdparty` package. 
     10 * '''Update Support''':  All packages included in `-workstation` will receive updates.  New software will be made available at the discretion of the Debathena team. 
     11 * '''Minimal Support''': All packages included in `-login` will receive security updates whenever possible.  Bugfix updates for packages in `-login` will be at the discretion of the Debathena team.  No further support will be provided for graphical logins, though existing functionality will not be removed. 
     12 * '''Dead''': The packages are removed from the Debathena APT repository, and new installations are no longer possible.  Existing installations may continue to function, but will not receive updates or support assistance.

     16Ubuntu provides support for LTS releases for 3 years on "Desktop" and 5 years on "Server".  The line between "Desktop" and "Server" is very grey, on both the upstream side of things and our end.
