Yes, because the LTRs are most suited for backports to stable (as they 
don't require project upgrades every couple of months).

I also don't have the time to keep up with the frequent regular releases 
(the Debian GIS team is too understaffed for that), so the LTRs are 
ideal for Debian.

Unless someone steps up to maintain the qgis package in Debian, I'm not 
considering switching back to the regular releases.

Kind Regards,
