moving my mind a bit more I think it is best if we start into
openvas-libraries 3.1.0-rc1 and openvas-scanner 3.1.0-rc1.

This would introduce a number of interesting new features
with a clear mark.
It would mean to backport a number of small patches
for the openvas-libraries 3.0.6, but I think thats

Any concerns with this approach?
