Okay, let us think of the future..... After the whole discussion about
the 11.4 vs 12.0 topic in the end of the development cycle for the done
release, I think it´s better to talk on it now and make clear which
goals we want achieve with the successor of 11.4. I don´t want to call
it 11.5 or 12.0, just the "successor" till the version number is clear.

For this, I have two ideas here:

Eight months after the 11.4 release, we´ve got November 2011. So, the
release maybe can be called *12*, because 2011 is a linux celebration
year (1991-2011, twenty years). If we use this tactic, we have to
release it on the 17th September, because Linux 0.01 was released on the
same date.

Or we say, 11.5 is the logical, evolutionaly and not revolutionary
successor of 11.0, 11.1, 11.2, 11.3 and 11.4 so it called *11.5*

So far with the version game for marketing:

I think everybody jumped on your 11.5/12.0 discussion but you raised
another question that got lost:

What´s the technology way we want do for the 11.4 successor?

So, are there any great ideas that people want to do?

We have to go through openFATE soon and see also what people proposed. In
general, we need both good ideas and volunteers driving the implementation
and integration,
