Hi :)
It is really difficult to choose a name.

"Production" is also not in common usage and might confuse people.  It
kinda implies factory-work or suggests that it might be something to do
with coding to create LibreOffice.  I've seen it used in a few geeky places
but "normal users" (if such persons exists) are unlikely to have heard it.

"Still", to me, suggests stagnant, not going anywhere or stuck.  An example
might be "Blimey you are still stuck on this ancient pos?"

"Still" is a bit like the idea behind the SliTaz naming but they use
"Stable" too alongside their "Cooking" branch.  Perhaps we could use
"Simmering" as in "barely palpable simmering rage" or "In the UK public
disorder simmered just under the surface throughout the eighties
occasionally boiling over in demonstrations, strikes and riots".

I'm sure most parents are familiar with the difficulty of choosing a
suitable name!  Did anyone else go out and seek suggestions from other
people and run through previous suggestions?  Then finding that names they
had thought were great had suddenly turned very sour?  "The Doctor" in Star
Trek Voyager never does manage to settle on a name for himself but helps
choose a good name for Naomi.

Sorry NoOp!  I had assumed the name choosing would have been done
Regards from
Tom :)

The problem is that it is difficult to find a word that explains that
version is new (with new features/bugs/regressions) and the other one
been patched so that new features are already stable.

If you call Stable to the patched branch (and calling it Patched doesn't
sound very nice either) seems to imply that the other branch (now called
Fresh) isn't stable in the sense that it will crash and be unusable...

There was a proposal to call the (previously named Stable and now named
Still) branch as Mature. But since that word is currently associated
some sexual preference/deviation, it was dropped in favor of Still.

I search the discuss list to see if I could find where this proposal
took place, but failed to find anything. The only relevent post I found
was the one you made in 2012:
(Which version to get?)
So if you can kindly point me to the correct list to view the proposal &
discussion I'd be grateful.

The discussion happened on the private marketing list. This list is not
secret but kept private because this is where PR are prepared and are
under embargo until the release, however translators need to have them
Charles explains the choice that was made in his blog here
If you want to give your feedback and make other proposals, please make
them on the marketing list to reach the marketing team.

Kind regards
