Sorry, Thomas but being direct or justifying the disagreement is a separate thing from using such
words, I do not find these appropriate. My humble request is to avoid these, please.

Yes, this page has all information but that is what my point was, you need to look into the release
page to get those details then just getting that information from release name/number.

Yes, that is the plan but we are checking the legal things also in case any
issue to use 'tick', 'tock' word.

Anything is possible in the future :) and nobody knows that. But on a serious note, yes
there might be a chance that tock can go away or tick timeline can be increased. That is
what we will see based on feedback and users' need. But as per the current plan, there
are no such things planned and we will continue with tick, tock way.
