The problem is that this did quite the opposite. The previous terminology was clear to everyone here. The new one is not only unclear, it's actively
dangerously confusing as it reuses names previously used for earlier
snapshots for later ones, which caused several developers to deliver late.
These terminology changes should be reverted for F13!


People with cargo cult knowledge knew what they meant but not new contributers nor community users. The change was for the better as it more clearly defines the milestones. Any change is going to cause some confusion with those who are used to the previous state but to change t again would just be worse. In no time you'll be used to the change and rail against any fruther change.
