[OpenWrt-Devel] [RFC] use Debian like release channel identifiers?

as 19.07 is *just around the corner* I was wondering if there's a better
way of distinguishing between versions.
Right now, I see 4 different *channels* which somewhat match the Debian
style, therefore a possible mapping:
18.06.N -> stable
19.07-rcN -> testing
19.07-SNAPSHOT -> unstable
SNAPSHOT -> experimental
This naming could allow users to choose different "upgrade" channels,
like for Debian, Nextcloud, Firefox, etc. They could be informed about a
new upgrades via the LuCi interface or a cron-mail-daemon-service-thing.
The tool to check for upgrades could be build on-top of a PR
introducing JSON information of versions, targets and created images.
A Luci app is currently being created, I'd work on some rpcd code to
work in the background.
It's somewhat cosmetic only but also simplifies user understanding of
what they're using - right?
