For a little more context please see the blog post I have made [1]. Once we have all the proposals in (please see the example from Matthias Kuhn at the bottom of the aforementioned post and keep it nice & simple)  we will collate them and then select one (or a hybrid of several) and share those plans with the broader community. I will make all the proposals publicly available and we will make the final decision in consultation with the developer community.

I am also in favour of proposal 1 (release 2.16 and then 3.0) as it
has a good balance in terms of how much time in advance 3.0 is
announced, how much time is there to adjust to py3/qt5, and how much
extra time can be used for API breaking changes.
