There is somewhat of an overstatement in the document:

>Where do we want to be

>The release branch naming and meaning shall be modeled on Debian's: experimental, unstable, >testing and stable.

Claiming where "we want to be", is a very strongly worded statement. I
think it is inappropriate to make such a statement of "what we want",
until a majority of "members" have actually voted that to be so.

While I recognize that a nice chunk of folks discussed it at the
Wintercamp (and I regret that due to financial reasons and scheduling
I could not make it), that group of people did not constitute a voting
majority, as far as I am aware.
