Thanks for this feedback. We'll revise it to "from:".

Since we're still making minor revisions to this proposal, I'm going to extend the review period by another day to make sure we don't have any other important feedback pending.

>> The "after" in .upToNextMajor(after: "x.y.z") sounds like we're going to pick the version after `x.y.z`, for e.g. `x.y.(z+1)`, and go upto the next major version. I think we should use `from` instead of `after`, which is more clear IMO. It also feels like `after` and `from` (in shorthand) do different things, and if we use `form`, it will also be reasonable to assume that the `.package(url:from:)` is a shorthand form.
