What Greg tried to explain to you is that the convention is to pick a
sufficiently well tested kernel to make sure its maintenance will not
become a huge burden, and that it cannot be a single-person effort,
testers are needed during that period. As such companies and/or users
engaging in investing some resources for testing are extremely
important and if some have a good reason to prefer investing that time
on a different kernel, their choice will count more than just a kind
request on the mailing list. Now you know how to make your voice count
if you want/need 6.1 to become LTS.
