Well we really need to have an "easier" way for the users find the more "conservative" version of 3.6.5 when 3.7.0 comes out. I do not think anyone would call 3.7.0 the version a new user should try first over 3.6.5. SO we need a better and easier way for them to get to that install instead of the default 3.7.0 downloads.

Since the question keeps coming up, and we should promote both lines of our 2 line development cycle, we need an easy way to display/access both lines at the same time like shown in

If we do not show BOTH lines in the "default" download page, how can we say we are promoting both of our development cycle lines? That is the key point really. If we do not promote both lines, then why bother with updating the older line or have it available when 3.7.0 comes out????

would like to close this subject once and for all.

Thank you,

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.
