+1 to make 2.14 a longer-term release (2 years ?),
I don't see a drawback to that (the weekly-silence rule makes it 
so that if there's nothing to fix, there's nothing to release,
reducing the maintainance cost over time).

Now the question is: when would a QT5 compatible version be needed ?
And, would it be ok for it to not be an LTR before Feb 2017 ?
