Dave the only reason I see is that the devs are interestested in 31 but not in auld stuff like 30.
If you build from source, unlike previous releases I’ve looked at, 30 won't *easily* build on o modern distro like ubuntu 20.04 suse leap 15.2 or I imagine any of the fedora line.
By same token 31 won’t build on older distros.

The app image route may well be the way ahead and I guess the shotcut folk can tell us lots
