That is how I understood it too, regular releases will now be all at .0 
only, no such thing as a maintenance branch with point releases.

My sentence wasn't properly clear - intel won't be making any community 
maintenance point type releases, just X.x.0.

So some people have been thinking a maintenance release will come out, 
2.5.4 - it will not as I understand it. The intel presentation also 
mentioned it's out for customers, so it's done but only for customers.

So, if you want to keep running 2.5 or any other branch, or want to test 
something and see if it's stable, it makes sense to have patch lists. 
And some kind of central resource for that as Colin Faber mentioned.
