The key distinction is in the "Version lifecycle release policy" link for
the ltsrel definition. Another way of phrasing it would be:
"* long-term support release branches: For every MediaWiki release that is
a Long Term Support release (see [[mw:Version lifecycle]]) there is a
corresponding branch in the extension."
If that makes sense to you (and others) I can edit that page for clarity.

I'm confused about what the term
"ltsrel" means. The way I understand it,
it *should* mean that the extension supports only Long Term Support
versions of MediaWiki. It would have a branch for every LTS version of
MediaWiki like REL1_31 and REL1_35, but not for REL1_32, REL1_33 or REL1_34.
However, on the Compatibility
the rel and ltsrel policies are described as:
* release branches (key: rel): For every MediaWiki release, there is a
corresponding branch in the extension. So e.g. if you use MediaWiki 1.36,
you should use the REL1_36 branch of the extension.
* long-term support release branches (key: ltsrel): For every MediaWiki
release, there is a corresponding branch in the extension, following the
Version lifecycle release policy.
These sound exactly alike to me.
