From what I understand, LTS releases for servers are meant to be stable releases.
Now say I am running Ubuntu Lucid 10.04 LTS, if I get a particular package, like say puppet, it will load 0.25 or whatever.
Now if I want to load the latest version, what are my options?
I can get download via source and manually build, but then I have to setup start/stop scripts etc.
Is the only other option to update my source list? If I do that, what are the ramifications? Will it effect apt-get update/upgrade commands?
Does it even make sense, should I just go with the latest version like 11.04 Natty?
