Due to the fact that the development for Kernel 3.13 has been dropped, the latest iteration being Kernel 3.13.11 the Ubuntu Kernel Team will maintain the development of Kernel 3.13 until April 2016, in order to bring both bug-fixes and security updated to Ubuntu Trusty.

The new kernel 3.13.11-forks will be available via git://kernel.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/linux.git, and will be named linux-*-3.13.11{-queue,-review}

Most likely, the first point release of Ubuntu Trusty, Ubuntu 14.04.1 will not be using Kernel 3.13 anymore.
