This question already has an answer here:

I am running Lubuntu and it does not have LTS releases, so I want to know if my version is EOL or not and what versions are.

I know of the Releases page on the wiki, but that only covers Ubuntu, not any of the distros of Ubuntu, such as Lubuntu, Xubuntu, Kubuntu, etc. I also know of the ubuntu-release-status command, and that is useful, but could be a bit confusing for new users and isn't easy to understand.

Are there any pages that has a list of all the distros and their life terms, or a page per-distro separate from the Ubuntu wiki page?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

@Braiam Yes, that is useful for finding about just Ubuntu, but it doesn't include any of the derivatives (Lubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu, etc.) – RPi Awesomeness Feb 4 '14 at 16:35
Actually it does. "These release notes for Ubuntu * (*) provide an overview of the release and document the known issues with Ubuntu * and its flavors." – Braiam Feb 4 '14 at 16:45
@Braiam Where? I can't see that...I was mainly asking this because Lubuntu 12.04 isn't LTS like Ubuntu 12.04 as per this: "Unlike Ubuntu, Lubuntu 12.04 is not a LTS, this version will be supported for 18 months..." from Lubuntu Blog for 12.04 so what you said, doesn't appear to quite apply. – RPi Awesomeness Feb 4 '14 at 16:52 – Braiam Feb 4 '14 at 17:00

Not that I know of. Maybe monitoring something like could help you.

For example, here's a quote from

Ubuntu announced its 13.04 (Raring Ringtail) release almost 9 months ago, on April 25, 2013. This was the first release with our new 9 month support cycle and, as such, the support period is now nearing its end and Ubuntu 13.04 will reach end of life on Monday, January 27th. At that time, Ubuntu Security Notices will no longer include information or updated packages for Ubuntu 13.04.
