as many are german, I share what I immeadiately thought of:

an english equivalent that has the additional benefit of being shorter
would be "hub"

so I'd propose<type>[?paramenters]

Two comments:
     * It should be possible to have more than one link from within
       LibreOffice -> e.g. extensions, templates, bugs, feedback,
       ordering coffee, ...

Yes, that's covered, the initial part of the URL would reflect that,
in the above example the "type" string.
i.e.[?parameters]{?parameters] etc.

     * The maintenance effort should be low - I don't know if the
       current idea means to manually add redirects for each published

No - simplest is to create "versioned" pages as necessary and evaluate
the URL parameters either using javascript on the client or with php
on the server - both are simple to implement.
In case there is no match, just hand out the current/default page as
if no parameters were given.

     * It should also work for "derivatives" or non-TDF builds. Working
       means that we should be able to guide the user to a page that
       explains why its not working / what's the alternative.

How to do that is a matter of policy / how likely it is to encounter
such an URL from outside LibreOffice for example. If such an URL is
frequently used, then it is bothersome to use

it would then be easier to have a lik for example.

But that's a detail, my main concern was to have one single domainname
instead of 20.

indeed, you raise very valid points here, and I am in favor of your
solution - thanks for bringing this up!

Would "hub" be a name acceptable for everyone? Alternatively, we can
also use the more technical term of "redirect", in case we want to
reserve the name "hub" for some future items.

Yes, redirect is fine for me ... personally, I never heard "hub" for
that (might just disclose my non-knowledge *g*).

I was thinking about airport hub, like a central airport that connects
many routes (Verkehrsknotenpunkt) - or the center of a wheel (Nabe)
where the individual spokes (Speichen) are connected with each other.
