Subject: Suggest EPICS Base series type definitions on website

Hello, all.

I would like to request the addition of a blurb to the "Versions and
Numbering" section of:

  https://epics.anl.gov/base/index.php

to explain the difference between "new major release," "current release
series," "stable release series," and "maintenance releases."

I really appreciate the blurb that was added to explain the version
numbering system and how to know if something is considered suitable for
production use.  However, now I'm wishing for a similar blurb about the
different release series types.  For example, there's 3.14.12.7, 3.15.5,
and 3.16.1.  According to the version numbering system, all of those
are suitable for production use.  I'm wishing for a blurb that can help
me know which series I should choose.  Ralph Lange gave a good start to
this in:

  https://epics.anl.gov/tech-talk/2016/msg01398.php

except now 3.14.x is labeled "maintenance," and that hasn't been
defined.  And of course there's also now the EPICS 7.0 series labeled
"new major release" for which I also don't know the definition.

Thanks!

Lewis
