A shorter one;
What problem do you have ?
Tiki ways are based on long experience (2004) and available resources.
Every one can bring up ideas and change things (accordingly to the other members of the community)
Stable versions are not experimentals, they are good for production.
Upgrading from LTS to LTS or from STS to STS are different strategies. Admins choose the one that is good to them. I tend to do STS from STS because I have less chances or tornados between upgrades... And I like new stuff.
What I remember...
