I was unable to find any information regarding the Arch's policy on the LTS kernel, specifically, what determines when the current lts version is replaced by the next lts version?
As Thomas said, I don't think anything has been formally decided. That said, what is currently happening is that we follow the '-longterm' releases by Greg. He outlined his plans for them some time ago.
At the moment I think there is only one active -longterm release, so it is quite simple. However, you can see from the plan that at some point we should expect there to be two active -longterm kernels at any given time. Then we have to decide if we want to go with the most recent or the least recent version. Either way, we should expect to eventually end up upgrading once per year (assuming Greg sticks to his plan that is). Or we could of course stay two years on each release. I guess time will tell.
