Ubuntu 14.04 LTS availability

With this new LTS version coming out in a few weeks, is there a rough ETA on how long it takes to add that to the install templates for a new droplet?

Anyone know how long it took to add previous versions? We are keen to start a LTS droplet but would rather start with 14.04 than having to upgrade a 12.04 in a couple of weeks.
I'm in the same situation. I need to start an LTS droplet for a customer but if I new 14.04 would hit the templates pretty fast I would rather wait.
I'm guessing it isn't particularly straightforward as DO will need to clone all the repos and build their own images, would be nice to hear even a rough estimate though.
Apparently they had 13.10 the after its official release:
the *day* after...and apparently you cannot edit your comments here :(
Well that would be very cool.
We're aiming to have Ubuntu 14.04 available soon after its stable release.
Official release happened today, and I see 14.04 in the Create Droplet page. Sweet!
