I like having LATEST and LTM symlinks, but---

Did we decide that after 3.8 the next LTM release will be 3.10? (Or 4.0 
whenever that lands?) And an LTM release is maintained for 12 or 18 months?

If so there probably will be two active LTM releases, assuming we can 
ship the next releases on time.

We should have LTM-3.8 and eventually LTM-3.10 symlinks then. Or are 
there other ideas?

Indeed. Well, that's the status quo, and beyond our control in any event.
