I think this thread has gone way beyond what the original posting was about.

Yes, there is a point about calling a version "conservative" since a few people might see the name and think about their country's political party with that name. But the point is we are beyond using words like "more stable" in describing one line over the other. So it is time to move on and stop using this thread name.

Maybe someone can start a new thread about how to describe the two lines for new users. When 3.7.0 comes out in Feb 2013, we will have the same questions being asked about which line a user should try "first". At that point 3.6.5 will be out as well.

end this thread and someone start a new one about what words, terms, etc., are needed to help NEW users choose between the two lines. Then by the time 3.7.0 comes out, we might have an agreement on how we can better promote our two line development cycle and its packages.

Hi :)
Please give it a rest.

I was just pointing out that 1 suggested name was the same name as a major political party.  
Accidentally calling things by names that have serious implications in certain places is something 
that we might be able to avoid unless we are not allowed to communicate with each other.

Tom :)
