Good morning crowd

Looks like we've more or less an agreement or idea that could work for most of 

- Monthly features releases of KF5 with keyword for bugs to backport.
- 6/12 monthly (still to be decided) stable branches (with optionally a 
release script that tags it monthly, is this doable?)

So are there distros (opensuse, fedora, kubuntu, gentoo, arch and all the 
others) who would like this and would work "upstream" on this and do some 
testing and are there KF5 developers that like this as well and would have and 
eye on backports and do them occasionally (or at least help people to decide 
and backport)?

If there is some agreement and people would like to try it we should try it. 
First thing would then probably be to decide on the stable release duration (6 
or 12 months?). Second would be the communication of this new release strategy 
and third would be to setup the infrastructure (stable branch, release 
scripts, etc.)

What do you think?

Best regards
