OK, here's one of the favorite discussion topics.

So I'll keep it short to get the discussion started:

   The next release from trunk will be called 25.1 rather than 24.5

There, I said it.  For completeness, here's the motivation:
In retrospect 24.3 should have been named 25.1 and 24.4 should have been
named 26.1.  The ".N" thingy should really be kept only for bug-fix
releases and neither of 24.3, 24.4, nor the previously planned 24.5 are
bug-fix releases.

I'll stop listening to this thread starting right about now, but don't
let that stop you wasting your time debating at length about this boring
