I think this will be one piece in the puzzle.

Next to this I'd like to see other measures, like a release being 
labelled /"QGIS LTR 3.12 Beta 1"/ on the splash screen and possibly 
other communicative measures by mail, blog, application news feed etc, 
like Qt does for example https://www.qt.io/blog/qt-5.14.0-beta1-released .

I think it would be best to have a small group to discuss possibilities 
and required efforts and come forward with a proposal.
