Well, I feel completely differently.
For me, people are using different words, and are in agreement in some points.
Or maybe I am reading this wrong?

Here is what I read:
1) Many want more releases, not less. I haven't seen a complaint about tagging more releases.
2) More than one person is proposing to abandon the integrated release, and nobody has complained about it.
3) Many people seem eager to carry "stable branches" for "critical patches", but no new definition of such criticality was done.
4) Many people want to make sure it's easy to upgrade, and with less steps for operations.

I don't see any conflicts, just areas for improvement, for those who have been participating on this topic.

Can someone clarify if I have tunnel vision/bias (as it seems exactly what I proposed in my first answer)?

Thank you in advance.
