I just happened to notice that the Release Strategy  on our homepage is
outdated w.r.t. the versioning scheme: It still calls the 1.x.y versioning scheme
the 'improved' one, and does not mention the new 3.0.0+ scheme at all.

In fact, the only official mentions of the new versioning scheme are the blog post 
from November 28 and (indirectly) the License page  because it has been
updated for the Apache relicensing.
So maybe `releasestrat.html` needs an update? You could also add a separate
`versioning.html` for versioning details, if you don't want to overload `releasestrats.html`.
The contents of `versioning.html` could be taken partially from  and .
