It would be nice to have the proper next version number (after 7.6)
ready when master branches in a few weeks, and for the new release plan.
Has that been finalized yet? If not, can we get the decision made before
7.6 branches off? NOW is the appropriate time for deciding if we go to
7.7, or 8.0 or 24.02. (Justin)

+ my option (Justin): 24.02 is fine - good fit for regular, timed releases.

The next major release after LibreOffice 7.6 will be LibreOffice 24.2 (February), which will be followed by LibreOffice 24.8 (August)

* Given the current level of maturity of the LibreOffice Technology development platform, it is increasingly difficult to provide a number of significant new features for each major release based on the current numbering scheme (while new features are key for media coverage, if we maintain the current numbering scheme)

* By choosing a calendar based numbering scheme, we decouple the expectation of significant new features from each new major release: if we have significant new features they will be welcomed by the media, but if we don't have them the media will not be disappointed (and will write about LibreOffice)

* We have already started to adapt our communication strategy to the new numbering scheme by meeting journalists independently from announcements

* At LibreOffice Conference we will provide additional information about the communication strategy, and how this will help increasing the update frequency by users (which is now rather low, apart from a very small percentage of users)
