    in 2011 there will be a -longterm kernel picked (1 maintained)

    in 2012 there will be a -longterm kernel picked (1+1=2 maintained)

    in 2013 there will be a -longterm kernel picked, but the 2011 one will no
    longer be maintained (1+1+1-1=2 maintained)

    in 2014 there will be a -longterm kernel picked, but the 2012 one will no
    longer be maintained (1+1+1+1-1-1=2 maintained)
