LTS not included in motd

base-files (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: base-files

00-header should use lsb_release -d so that LTS appears in the motd instead of the codename.

So instead of: Ubuntu 10.04 (lucid)
We'd have: Ubuntu 10.04 LTS

Changed in base-files (Ubuntu Lucid):
importance: Undecided → High
milestone: none → ubuntu-10.04
status: New → In Progress

While we are losing the release code name with this branch it is worth noting that if we were to use lsb_release -d and lsb_release -c we could end up with the following for Maverick.

Ubuntu maverick (development branch) (maverick)

So something fancy could be done to detect if someone is running the development branch but that might be invasive for Lucid.

I think it's actually fine to lose the code name from the banner at release time, and consistent with our overall branding policy.
