Oh, I understand what is being discussed.

What you don't understand is the complaint.

Fresh is not testing. It has never been "testing".

I'm not arguing about what 'Fresh' relates to.

I'm saying that creating these totally new, never before head of terms
to describe different branches of software - ie, 'Fresh', 'Still' etc -
rather than using some standard terms/terminology that actually are used
by many different projects (admittedly, there is some amount of
variation) - ie, 'Stable', 'Testing', 'Development' - is what is ridiculous.

But those doesn't exist anywhere else, because we are not producing a
distro but a desktop software and the concept is completely different.
And yet, this is something that you don't want to ear.

Use STANDARD terms, then precisely define THOSE.

Which are certainly not stable, testing and development.

If you really insist on having two different 'Stable' branches, then
name them something like 'Stable-New' and 'Stable-Old' or something else
that makes much more sense than 'Still' or 'Fresh.

Then, do you think that those two stable won't confuse the users?

Of course, if you just enjoy *creating* confusion, then by all means,
continue reinventing terms with new ones that no one understands and
sound silly on top of it all.

I don't think that anybody contributing in this project wants to lose
users and contributors time. Each time, we explain and discuss to try to
find the best way to resolve and further things.
Kind regards
