I think that the main source tree is in pretty good shape, so branching off 
the 18.0X rather soon might make sense.

There is alweays the next new exiting feature to be included in, but if the 
intention is still to make several major releases per year, the next feature 
will get into the next release rather soon.

So little stuff gets backported to 17.01, that a possible 17.01.5 would be 
just a quick temporary fix, not a proper solution. jow was talking about that 
ealier, and a 17.01.5 might be ok as a stopgap or "safe upgrade" from 17.01.x.

If 17.01.5 is really made, at least the mvebu mwlwifi driver should be 
updated first. 17.01 still has the ancient June 2017 version of mwlwifi 
driver, while master was recently upgrdaed to 2018-03-30 that is likely the 
best driver version so far.

But I don't think it's too soon to talk about pausing the project evolution briefly and making the hard decisions about what's in, what's out. Then most people (who're unwilling to run a snapshot) can get the benefit of all your effort over the last year.
