+1 changing the plan right after making it isn't good.

Shall a change happen, it should be advertised before the next LTR
(following existing schedule) comes out.

Personally I wouldn't care about missing 2.12, but 2.14 LTR is what
I'm looking at (although it is always hard for me to figure out
exactly when it is expected, I guess Feb 2016 ?).
