This was not intended as a _documentation_ of the status quo.
Although it does that as well, it primarily constitutes a
_proposal for a strategy_ which aims to focus on and stick to
existing strengths of the project while addressing some
deficiencies. In fact it incorporates parts of the other
proposals and should stand adjacent to them as an equal

We just have to separate "what we did" and "what we plan" into two
wikistyle ==sections==.

That said, if there is anything in there that is not expressly
marked as "we plan to do this", then let's hear it.

good compromise between actuality and stability (the Debian--Fedora tradeoff)

I guess SUSE always had that.

agreeable release cycle 8-12 months

It was something like that. Now somebody mentioned it was a fixed 8 months,
so uh well. That decision itself is young.

support for the 3 most current releases

Also a reply stated 2 releases - to make 18 months. Which isn't quite true.
_Right now_, there's 11.0, 11.1 and 11.2 supported, and as I've just read
on LWN, 11.0's has just been extended until 11.3 is here. And once that is
out you again have three: 11.3, 11.2, 11.1.

We will do The Right Thing

Now, that is perhaps in part, novel. But it is expressly prefixed with "will",
so is not something that was always done in the past (think: pulseaudio).

And so on.
