[TYPO3-core] After the LTS is before the LTS

I like the idea of shorter development cycles.
I agree with the "possible problem" of developers not working with the EAR versions, but that seems to be the same problem as with the old in between versions. I think this needs a rethinking in the heads of developers/ agencies. In my honest opinion this is more of a pro than a con, because I like the idea of looking into stable snapshots.
For the discussion with the versioning. Sorry I don't get it. Semantic versioning is perfect and the comparison with ubuntu is a little bit wonky, as ubuntu is more of a stable snapshot of libraries and programs that are all following their own versioning (mostly semantic btw).

So conclusion I like the idea (including the versioning). Probably their needs to be a rethinking of deprecation  handling as I can skip a LTS version, but probably that's my decision as an developer/ agency.
Also there needs to be a rethinking in the heads of agencies/ developers about the EAR versions as I expect them to be used less in real world projects than the current in between versions.
