Not completely ignored, I'd say. There was the 2020/2025 MarCom plan
, plus the discussions around moving to a rolling release model,
that also IIRC included CalVer naming. One of the things many people
considered very important for that model though, was auto-updating
binaries. That part is still stuck, since it needs some decent amount
of engineering (both inside LibreOffice, as well as for infra).
But I don't see a reason not to decouple the two aspects, besides the
fact that the messaging is presumably easier when bundled.
