What we are trying to achieve here is to enable a development workflow against the LTS version of MediaWiki. So we use the current MediaWiki LTS version (currently 1.31) as a basis for our extensions. This is mainly because we simply do not have the dev resources to keep updated with the fast moving master branch of MediaWiki. Within the ~2 years of LTS support, we provide bug and security fixes (patch releases) for the current stable extension as well as feature improvements (minor releases). This is why we need to maintain at least two lines of development. I would assume a development workflow against the LTS version is something that is not only specific to BlueSpice, but would strengthen the concept of MediaWiki LTS in general.
