A personal opinion based on facts.

A rolling distro isn't a defined term, as Michael explained, now you
add "light" to the equation and it becomes even more undefined.

I said all I got to say on this topic, now I can wait and see how
things turn out (my guess would be it'll stay the same, Cauldron a
rolling/dev distro, and stable releases on predefined intervals, just
my "personal" guess).
