Sorry I don't really know what the semantics are, and incorrectly tried
to document what I thought was the case here:


Then how about the following as the way forward?  This assumes nobody
has the time to backport security fixes to the 3.6.x branch any more,
and we are confident 3.7.x is stable.

-|stable|3.6.x  |as needed       |
-|next  |3.7.x  |bi-monthly      |
+|stable|3.7.x  |as needed       |
+|next  |3.8.x  |bi-monthly      |
