OTA number based on Ubuntu version
At the pace Ubuntu Touch is evolving (congrats), we'll reach OTA 100 and more soon...
I was thinking that as OTA 20 is coming but not yet passed and the move to Ubuntu 20.04 is in the air, why OTA 20 would not equal the switch to Ubuntu 20.04.
After That, OTAs could become 20.x (as many x as needed devs) till Ubuntu Touch get based on Ubuntu 22.04... and OTA will become 22.x ...
I have no idea about OTA 21, OTA 23... as Ubuntu Touch is based on LTS version of Ubuntu.
Just an idea on the go.
But what happens if Ubuntu Touch based on Ubuntu 20.04 is not ready before it is time to release OTA-20? OTA-20 is, at a maximum, in four months. I find it highly unlikely that Ubuntu Touch 20.04 will be ready in four months. We're not going to stop releasing improvements to Ubuntu Touch just to hit an arbitrary number goal.
@unisuperbox is there anything stopping us from using OTA-16.x system? I understand the thought process behind the idea, however, if we are to switch to a system like this, maybe have it as OTA-x.16 to indicate which OTA it is and the LTS version after that? I feel that would allow easier distinction between the OTAs and not pose a potential issue with the current OTA system as it would work to make it think its a major version change, with the same minor version, just my $0.02
