I'm not sure also :) But I wanted to provide a heads up at least for the bump of the major version. Merges of minor versions probably are OK without review, if we'll do them often.

Yeah, I think this would be useful, a simple acknowledgment from other member(s).

We are free to choose something most suitable for us. I think having both makes sense: following mainline development for fast resolution of the problems with merges and a stable release for users to try. However, it is an additional burden in maintenance. Having 17, the merge of the early pre-18 state should be simple, the opposite looks harder. So for following 17 looks useful but simple enough. We can extend this any time we'd want, I think.
