To many of us that all sounds like a lot of politicians, or marketing,
double-speak.

Agreed.

Why for criminy's sake reinvent these terms using such nonsensical words?

Just use *estabalished* terms, aka Debian...

Stable (Still). Testing (Fresh). Unstable (Development).

This is really just a ridiculous state of affairs.

I am sorry to say this, but what is ridiculous here is the inability of some to even understand what is being discussed.

Fresh is not testing. It has never been "testing". If you want testing, test betas, or release candidates. We have these for both branches, so let me rephrase this so to make it clear for everyone :

Fresh branch
(x.y.0, x.y.1 , etc.)
for each of these versions, we have several betas and release candidates.
This means that testing has happened already on betas and release candidates for each version of the fresh branch.

Still branch
(w.x.4, w.x.5, w.x.6)
for each of these versions, we have several betas and release candidates.
This means that testing has happened already on betas and release candidates for each version of the fresh branch.

Cor made a very good point earlier. He highlighted the importance of finding a proper way to clarify this, but not wasting our time in proposing other terms who will never be liked by everyone anyway. Let me encourage all those who pretend to actually have an opinion or who think the Illuminati are leading the LibreOffice project to focus on helping rather than complaining.

Thanks!

Charles.
