Done.  I'm thus closing this bug report.

Note that there are still some pending, tentative proposals about how to
improve the names and release policy for beta versions; but since those
proposals are more a follow-up to this discussion than an integral part
of it, they are IMO more suited to be further discussed in new, dedicated
threads.  So, if anyone is still interested in pursuing those ideas, please
open a new bug report (preferably complete with references to the relevant
messages in this thread, and with a summary of the main ideas, motivations,
and consensus -- or lack thereof -- reached so far).

Thanks to all that have participated to this discussion, and offered
their feedback, ideas and experiences.

Best regards,
