I believe you are thinking of Mythbuntu and not MythTV.  Mythbuntu
releases alongside Ubuntu every six months with whatever the current
release of MythTV is at that time.  Mythbuntu also provides
repositories to allow you keep up to date with MythTV in between
Mythbuntu releases.


As for .25, I believe the best way for a non-dev to follow the release
timeframe is to watch the trac roadmap.


Don't look at the date for the milestone, it is useless.  If you watch
it over time and look at the number and priorities of active tickets
for a milestone, you can gauge if a release is imminent.  If you see
any blocker, critical, or major priority tickets, a release is not
happening any time soon.  As the number of active tickets and
priorities gets low, you are more likely to see a release.  Especially
if low priority tickets start getting reassigned to the release after

As of 3/12/2011, there are 94 active tickets.  That is a large number.
 There are five major, two critical, and two blocker priority tickets.
 These are good indications the the release will require much more

This may be a crude way to track progress, but that is all a non-dev
has to keep up-to-date.

That is why I asked about the backport, but I got the answer I was expecting.
