As the OP I'll clarify.
Mythbuntu tracks with the Ubuntu Version Numbers: 8.04, 8.10 and 9.04 are
the three most recent version numbers of Ubuntu.
A "distribution" (repackage) of Ubuntu specifically for MythTV is Mythbuntu
(same as MythDora / Fedora). What probably got confusing was that Mythbuntu
is also a PACKAGE that can be installed in a Ubuntu (base) system to provide
myth capability. All of this has NOTHING to do with the MythTV Release
(0.21.xxxx) version shipping within the Mythbuntu system.
